Fitzgerald, Hemingway, and Morrill Cody: Two Degrees of Separation, or the One That Got Away
Aims to bring the life and writing of Morrill Cody, journalist in 1920s Paris and friend to Fitzgerald and Hemingway, back into the critical spotlight. Celebrates Cody's literary contributions, including his memoir The Women of Montparnasse (1984), which features a chapter on Hemingway's first wife, Hadley, describing her as the "best-liked woman" in Montparnasse. Highlights a number of his other works of interest to students and scholars of the modernist era such as This Must Be the Place: Memoirs of Montparnasse by Jimmie 'The Barman' Charters, As Told to Morrill Cody (1934), reprints notes sent by Hemingway to Cody regarding his writing of the book's introduction, and recounts remarks Cody made about Hemingway at a 1973 Paris conference.
