No admirer of Ernest Hemingway should be without this biography, fully illustrated with over 100 magnificent photographs. Here one can see Hemingway watching a bullfight, fishing in Key West, hunting in Tanganyika, looking over dead soldiers in Spain, engrossed in his writing, sailing with Martha Gellhorn, and talking with Fidel Castro. Hemingway was not just one of the most influential writers of the century. He was also an ambulance driver in World War I, a journalist covering the Spanish Civil War, a big-game hunter and deep-sea fisherman, a soldier with the French Resistance during World War II, an adherent of both pre- and post-Revolutionary Cuba, a passionate lover, the husband of four extraordinary women, a romantic prone to depression, a suicide, and of course, a best selling novelist. His colorful life lends itself to a sumptuously illustrated treatment. In this brief, to-the-point biography, David Sandison reveals Hemingway as a complex character who was far more than the sum of his parts, and in the process illuminates both his writings and the age helped define.

As a journalist in popular culture and modern history, David Sandison has been a columnist and contributor for a number of British and American periodicals. This is his second book on the life of Che GuevaraFrom Library Journal:
This is one of what will no doubt be many books published to coincide with Hemingway's upcoming centennial this July. Though photo-rich, this thumbnail portrait lacks detail and depth, offering little insight into Hemingway's life beyond names, places, and dates. It also contains neither an index nor a bibliography. Though it brings nothing new to the study of Hemingway, this book could attract the reader with a working knowledge of his life who is simply looking for the basics. Ultimately, however, it seems best suited for grammar and junior high school-level collections. Public libraries sporting the scholarly biographies by Carlos Baker and Michael Reynolds can pass on this.?Michael Rogers, "Library Journal"
