Biographical overview of Hemingway’s life, beginning with the conventional values of his hometown, Oak Park, and concluding with the circumstances leading up to his suicide. Corrects common biographical fallacies, including exaggerations of his 1918 wounding, and speculates on why so many manuscripts were left unpublished.
