About this title

Synopsis:

Ernest Hemingway devoted a large part of his writing life to nonfiction in the form of newspaper and magazine journalism and especially in the form of five full-length books. His nonfiction, however, is usually taken only as a diversion from the main business of his career, fiction, and examined only for light shed on the fiction. In this study - the first devoted exclusively to Hemingway's nonfiction books, the heart of his effort as a fact writer - the work is considered in its own right as a central part of his achievement.

From Library Journal:

While studies on Hemingway abound, very few concentrate solely on the old monster's nonfiction. Novels and short stories were his bread and butter, but Hemingway also prided himself on his journalistic abilities, producing four full-length books of nonfiction. Beginning with the influence of his early days as a cub reporter on the Kansas City Star , Weber fully analyzes the four ( Death in the Afternoon , Green Hills of Africa , The Dangerous Summer , and A Moveable Feast ), considering whether Ernesto accomplished his goal of writing the "absolute truth" about his subjects. The general consensus is that he did not relate events exactly as they happened but embellished them with the proper measure of emotion to ensure that they'd be "valid in a year or in ten years." Therefore, the term "nonfiction" as applied to these works should be taken loosely. Weber's own text is a bit repetitive in spots, but that is a minor critique. The information is well presented and documented, making this volume a long-overdue addition to Hemingway scholarship.
