Hemingway in Love: His Own Story: A Memoir
First published 1966 as Papa Hemingway: A Personal Memoir by Random House. Hotchner explains that his expanded memoir, based on their thirteen-year friendship, is made up of excised portions of the 1966 manuscript, his original notes, and fifty-year-old recollections. Reconstructing what Hemingway told him about those tumultuous years spent in 1920s Paris, Hotchner relates the author’s reminiscences regarding “the only real love” of his life, first wife Hadley Richardson, and his ultimate betrayal of her with Pauline Pfeiffer. Also comments on Hemingway’s relationships with his third and fourth wives and F. Scott Fitzgerald.
