Annotation

Surveys the complex friendship and literary rivalry between Hemingway and Fitzgerald, beginning with their initial 1925 meeting at the Dingo Bar in Paris. Summarizes Fitzgerald’s role in mentoring the unknown Hemingway and introducing him to his editor Max Perkins. Notes that although their relationship cooled over the years, due in part to Hemingway’s intense feelings of competition, the two never completely broke from each other.
