There were no bullfights in 1937 Madrid, just bombs, freedom fighters, journalists, and plenty of corpses. Ernest Hemingway, covering the Spanish Civil War for the American press, came looking for stories and danger, and found something else: a friend murdered amid the ruins.
Boisterous, bare knuckled, and stewed to the gills, Hemingway Cutthroat captures the writer at the height of his career and in a Europe teetering on untold cataclysm, struggling to find out not just for whom, but why the bell tolled.
In all honesty, I found Hemingway's work to be extremely boring. With that being said, I was intrigued when I read the synopsis for HEMINGWAY CUTTHROAT. I'm really glad I took a chance and asked to review this book. Michael's writing is original and entertaining.
