“Ernest Hemingway was the genuine literary giant of my youth: we groundlings studied him closely, we imitated and then we parodied him, we admired the fine figure he cut and envied his celebrity, and now fifty years later, it’s a privilege to look through his closet and read his stuff and discover him as a mortal man.”
— Garrison Keillor, author of Lake Wobegon and A Visit to Mark Twain’s House
“Hidden Hemingway offers remarkable insights into the complex and frequently-tortured inner life of one of the 20th Century American authors most likely to survive the test of time. An invaluable book for anyone interested in Hemingway or the development of a major creative mind.”
— Scott Turow, author of Identical and Presumed Innocent
“A fascinating book about the most fascinating writer in American history. Hemingway’s life unfolds from these pages in brilliant detail and endless surprise.”
— Jonathan Eig, author of Get Capone: The Secret Plot That Captured America’s Most Wanted Gangster
“What an absolute delight to have the treasures of the Oak Park Hemingway archives collected between two covers: little-known and previously unpublished photographs, family memorabilia, historic images of Oak Park, newspaper clippings, love letters, boyhood notebooks, Hemingway’s earliest fiction, and much, much more. A gem for scholars and fans alike!”
— Carl P. Eby, co-editor of Hemingway’s Spain: Imagining the Spanish World
“These manuscripts, photographs, and objects drawn from Hemingway’s personal papers might have the aura of a reliquary if they did not also and so uncannily convey a kind of longing known to those of us who spend our lives in the archives. Here not Hemingway, and not the authors of the present volume, but the archive itself must be credited as memoirist—a memoirist, moreover, who wakes us up to the souls of artifacts. The painstaking research involved in the documentation of these pieces never threatens to disturb their mysterious silence or their infinite summons.”
— Marta Werner, editor of The Gorgeous Nothings: Emily Dickinson’s Envelope Poems
