Annotation

Despite an agreement with her husband to refrain from being "a Boswell wife," Mary Welsh Hemingway kept a diary that spanned their marriage. Her eventual memoir, How It Was (1976), is among eleven spousal autobiographies Meyers visits here, although he finds it woefully wanting, a "destructive hagiography."
