Annotation

Assigns blame for incongruities in Mailer’s photo-essay on the corrida, with its errors and poor-quality photographs, to the book’s editor. Though Hemingway is mentioned only once in passing in Mailer’s narrative, Josephs teases out his influence on Mailer’s connection of the writer with toreo and the bullring’s larger context of war. Also published in Josephs’s On Hemingway and Spain: Essays & Reviews, 1979-2013, 431-51. Wickford, RI: New Street Communications, 2014.
