Annotation

Contends that Hemingway lost control of his carefully constructed public image to publishers bent on undermining his literary reputation to appeal to the mass market. Points to formulaic graphics and text used for paperback covers that conflated Hemingway the writer with Hemingway the celebrity, speculating on the far-reaching consequences of this manipulation on modern audiences.
