In this deeply researched portrait of Hemingway as a spy, Reynolds, a former CIA officer, curator of the CIA Museum, and author of Treason Was No Crime, traces the writer’s involvement in espionage back to the days of the OSS and the NKVD. Valued for his reporting skills and wide range of connections, Hemingway was seen as valuable to the Allied efforts against Hitler, including their struggle to liberate Paris from the Nazis, and he was recruited before and during the Second World War by both the Americans and the Soviets. Later, working undercover in Cuba, Hemingway grew skeptical of Communism, and Reynolds explores how Hemingway’s intelligence work affected his fiction, especially the late masterpiece, The Old Man and the Sea.
