Annotation

A brief and pointed biographical essay about Hemingway's third son asserting that his troubled life of inter- and intrapersonal conflict began with his birth to disappointed parents, who would have rather had a girl. The Hemingway biographer (1985) draws from his own frequently maddening encounters with Gregory as well as Gregory's memoir and books by two of his children and his third wife, Valerie Hemingway. Places Gregory within a tragic legacy besetting the family: "Reckless, self-destructive and unwilling to take advice, irrational, violent and driven by impulse, he could not be helped by psychotherapy, drugs or shock treatments, and was determined to punish his overwhelming father."
