about

Hemingway's triumphs as a writer during the 1940s and 1950s accompanied a life of risk and danger. Michael Reynolds discovered the truth about Hemingway's activities during the war years, which included running a counterintelligence operation in Havana. The postwar period was the most productive of Hemingway's writing life, when he authored the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Old Man and the Sea and received the Nobel Prize. Even as Hemingway graced the cover of Life magazine, his physical and mental health deteriorated while his public image as hunter and sportsman continued to demand the strenuous life. In 1961 he committed suicide, leaving behind the stuff of which American myths are made.

From Our Editors

Hemingway gained fame as a writer before the Second World War, but it wasn’t until after the war that his writing truly flourished. Hemingway: The Final Years chronicles Hemingway’s post-war life. Michael Reynolds reveals Hemingway’s true activities during the war years, including managing a counter-intelligence operation in Havana. The lifestyle that accompanied his writing after the war proved too much for him; his physical and mental health deteriorated while his public image flourished and in 1961 he took his life.
