Annotation

Details the lifelong friendship between Hemingway and the writer who received one of the few favorable portraits in A Moveable Feast. Elaborates on the authors’ shared interests and experiences, including Paris of the 1920s, literature, war injuries, and Spain. Theorizes that Shipman’s modest and gentle disposition complemented Hemingway’s volatile nature, and his creative output did not pose a threat to Hemingway’s status as a literary giant. Risch cites the latter as key to their lasting friendship.
