Ernest Hemingway and Bernard Berenson: A Strange Friendship
Examines Hemingway’s correspondence with the internationally known art historian from 1949 through 1957. Knigge focuses on the men’s differing personalities in his coverage of nearly sixty letters, concluding that Hemingway desperately sought the elder Berenson’s counsel and approval during a low point in his career and personal life. Also briefly discusses Martha Gellhorn’s correspondence with and about Berenson, from 1950 through 1959. Quotes liberally from the letters.
