Mary V. Dearborn - Ernest Hemingway: A Biography

Upcoming Event
Sunday, May 21, 2017 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

In the first full biography of Hemingway (1899-1961) in fifteen years, and the first one to be written by a woman, Dearborn draws on fresh resources, including the writer’s complete FBI file, KGB archives, and papers left by his sister, mother, and Key West mistress. Dearborn’s acclaimed biographies of Normal Mailer, Peggy Guggenheim, Henry Miller, and Louise Bryant have illuminated the lives of some of the most complex and influential figures of modern culture. Here, she traces Hemingway through his youth, his early work in journalism, his adventures, wives, and personal demons, including in the latter alcohol, manic depression, and brain injuries, all of which she believes eventually led to his suicide. Despite the challenges, Dearborn says, Hemingway changed the way we use language and even the way we think.
