Annotation

Documents the writer’s cruel and often satirical sense of humor toward his wives, critics, and literary rivals through letters and interviews. Chronicles Hemingway’s wit and sarcasm throughout his canon, including The Torrents of Spring, In Our Time, The Sun Also Rises and A Moveable Feast. Meyers discusses various subjects for the author’s black wit (e.g. death and sex), describing his command of language as a weapon fueled by anger.
