Hemingway: The Man Who Worked in and Enjoyed Cuba
Argues for Hemingway’s crucial connection to Cuba’s people, writers, and politics, pointing to The Old Man and the Sea as evidence. Includes reactions of contemporary and current Cuban intellectuals to demonstrate Hemingway’s lasting impact on Cuban writers and thinkers and suggests that his biographers may have slighted the importance of Cuba out of resentment over Hemingway’s preference to live in Cuba rather than America.
