Annotation

A fiction writer discusses how she was inspired by The Garden of Eden and set out to write "an intertextual novel" in which Hemingway's book plays a role. Briefly recounts the evolution of Hemingway's book and concedes that her interaction with The Garden of Eden stems from its abridged published version and not from its manuscript, which she has not seen. Discusses her strategy for creating characters, voice, and narrative action that derive from her reading of The Garden of Eden.
