James Plath, a professor of English at Illinios Wesleyan University, is a Hemingway scholar who has presented papers at three international conferences and was invited by the Ministry of Culture to lecture on Hemingway at the author's former home outside Havana, Cuba. Plath also directed the Hemingway Days Writers' Workshop & Conference in Key West for ten years. Frank Simons is a retired Sarasota, Florida, high school teacher who, as a grad student, traveled to Key West to interview the people closest to Ernest Hemingway.Review:
An important and unique addition to Hemingway lore. Extensive interviews which do as much as any biography written to date in providing a vivid portrait of this great American writer. --George Plimpton, founding editor, The Paris Review.
Hemingway fans and scholars alike will be fascinated by the interviews and reminiscences in Remembering Ernest Hemingway. In this intriguing book, Hemingway's sons Patrick and Gregory provide family insights into the legacy of their famous father, and many of his closest friends and confidants reflect on the character, work habits and dedication of one of the most important writers of the twentieth century. No one who is seriously interested in Hemingway will want to miss this valuable collection. --James Nagel, author of Hemingway in Love and War.
I recommend this book for two reasons. It is a superb, fun, illuminating journey and it is the only book about this great writer from which I came away feeling that I'd actually met the man, a man I now like very much. --Randy Wayne White, author of Night Vision and 18 other Doc Ford mysteries.
