In the fourteen years that A. E. Hotchner traveled with Ernest Hemingway, he collected a lifetime's worth of Hemingway's experiences, anecdotes, and observations on the backs of matchbooks, napkins, and slips of paper. Speaking on everything from war to women to writing, Hemingway's words are at turns funny and poignant, revealing a rich portrait of the American literary giant and the world he took by storm.

Complete with black-and-white photographs that cover nearly two decades of Hemingway's life, The Good Life According to Hemingway is an exuberant celebration of his remarkable genius and the chaotic adventure of his life.

    Author pretty much covered all the known bases, albeit hurriedly, with a number of Hemingway quotes. Maybe I wanted to feel closer to the man with additional verbiage and maybe that's not a valid complaint. The photos were wonderful and I had seen only a few of them before. Was sorry to see the end of the book.
