In this episode we explore the life of iconic 20th century fiction writer – Ernest Hemingway. Throughout his life Hemingway cultivated an image of hyper-masculinity: he was a heavy drinker, a big game hunter, a deep sea fisher, and a war correspondent.
He was present at some of the most significant conflicts of the 20th century, and they influenced his work.
But the larger-than-life writer also had a softer side. To help us get to know Hemingway, we’re joined by special guest, writer Mary V. Dearborn. Mary’s the author of Ernest Hemingway: A Biography.
