Paul Hendrickson - Hemingway's Boat - 10-2-11

On October 2, 2011, Paul Hendrickson spoke at Politics & Prose about his book Hemingway's Boat: Everything He Loved in Life, and Lost.

You’ve heard of Hemingway’s wives, but what about Pilar? A thirty-eight-foot motor yacht, Pilar was Papa’s refuge, his escape vehicle, and his occasional muse. Reflecting the boat’s central place and myriad roles in the writer’s life, Hendrickson, author of Sons of Mississippi, focuses this critical and biographical study on Hemingway’s voyages, his on-board entertaining, and the vessel’s effect on his turbulent moods.
