Praise

“[An] original portrait of the author’s life and work…Feldman’s eloquent, evenhanded biography is… A fresh and fair assessment of Hemingway’s life and work that refreshingly avoids slipping into hagiography.”—STARRED KIRKUS REVIEW

“This ‘untold story’ offers new takes on Hemingway’s literary friendships, extramarital affairs, and mixed feelings about Castro’s revolution. As Cuba and Hemingway continue their mystical and divisive holds on the American consciousness, Feldman’s book provides useful background.”—BOOKLIST

“For a work that covers as much historical ground as Ernesto does, Feldman’s narrative is taut and dramatic.  He presents a lot of new and fascinating material about Hemingway’s life in Cuba, engagingly played off against a lucid and thorough history of Cuba in the last century.  A great read.” —Mary V. Dearborn, author of Ernest Hemingway: A Biography 

“For a long time in Hemingway studies, the final and declining two decades of an over-chronicled life were largely misunderstood. Andrew Feldman’s readable Ernesto helps to extend our knowledge of Hemingway’s complex relationship with his adopted second homeland of Cuba.”
—Paul Hendrickson, author of Hemingway’s Boat: Everything He Loved in Life, and Lost

Ernesto is among the most important Hemingway titles to appear in recent years. Comprehensive, nuanced, and full of timely new perspectives, what sets this book apart is the author’s attuned and sensible approach to complex political and cultural affairs. Ernesto enriches our understanding of Hemingway in Cuba with perceptive insights on topics that rarely appear in criticism.”—Jeffrey Herlihy-Mera, In Paris Or Paname: Hemingway’s Expatriate Nationalism

“So much has been written about Ernest Hemingway, but this book is outstandingly different. Unlike any other I know, it expresses an understanding of the context: the Cuba Hemingway visited, lived in, and loved. It will be a reference point for any researcher who wants a better understanding of the work of this iconic author, and anyone trying to penetrate the varied, fascinating, and controversial life of the Bronze God of North American literature. This is a book that is worth reading.”—Ada Rosa Rosales, Director, Museo Hemingway Finca Vigia (Cuba)
