About this title


The author, eldest son of Ernest Hemingway, recounts his childhood in Paris, education at Dartmouth, work as an OSS agent in World War II, escape from a German POW camp, and experiences fishing around the world

From Publishers Weekly:

The author is John Hadley Nicanor Hemingway, firstborn son of the man who made the surname known throughout the world. The title refers to his lifelong enthusiasm for a pastime identified with his father as well. Jack Hemingway is a well known outdoorsman and has written extensively for outdoor magazines. His book is valuable in that regard alone. His recounting of his war experience as an OSS officer working with the French underground is fascinating on two counts: because he, like so many others in that time was only a college student, not even out of his sophomore year; and because, set against his father's values and preoccupations, he measured up, and that was important for him. Ultimately, it is his relationship to that man internationally celebrated as "Papa," that makes this autobiography interesting and it is laced throughout with incident and anecdote about his father.
