Leff, Leonard J. Hemingway and His Conspirators: Hollywood, Scribner’s, and the Making of American Celebrity Culture. Lanhan, MD: Rowman & Littlefield, 1997.

Annotation

Biography focusing on the careful crafting and manipulation of Hemingway’s public persona, largely by the author himself. Leff’s examination of the contemporary profession of authorship, literary marketplace, and publishing industry uncovers the mass media’s role in promoting the author’s legendary celebrity, which eventually eclipsed the man and his writing. Covers Hemingway’s professional relationship with Scribner’s, the composition, publication, and promotion of The Sun Also Rises, A Farewell to Arms, and Death in the Afternoon, and the 1932 film production of A Farewell to Arms.
