Beschreibung

'Whisking us from jazz-age Paris to post-war Cuba via 1930s Florida, Naomi Wood's sparkling novel explores the loves and losses of Hemingway's wives . . . vividly rendered, touchingly universal' Sunday Express

In the dazzling summer of 1926, Ernest Hemingway and his wife Hadley travel from their home in Paris to a villa in the south of France. They swim, play bridge and drink gin. But wherever they go they are accompanied by the glamorous and irrepressible Fife. Fife is Hadley's best friend. She is also Ernest's lover . . .

Hadley is the first Mrs. Hemingway, but neither she nor Fife will be the last. Over the ensuing decades, as each marriage is ignited by passion and deceit, four extraordinary women will learn what it means to love - and lose - the most famous writer of his generation.

'Luminous, intoxicating . . . full of betrayals and moments of heartbreaking intimacy' Marie Claire

'Richly imagined and emotionally wise . . . sensitive and moving' Daily Telegraph

'So beautifully written, so true and so vivid that it eclipses anything strictly biographical' Daily Mail

This is a wonderful book: carefully written, richly imagined and emotionally wise . . . It is all meticulously researched, but, as in the best of Penelope Fitzgerald, the research is worn lightly and never threatens to dominate . . . Even the well-known details of Hemingway's life are made fresh, given a new significance . . . Mrs. Hemingway feels truer than most of the biographies, and more real than many novels. Wood's method is an effective way of getting to grips with the central enigma: Hemingway himself, a man tortured by masculinity. But it is also a sensitive and moving evocation of those women he depended on, who his life often overshadowed Daily Telegraph

Ein sehr spannender und teils biografischer Roman über Ernest Hemingway und seine Frauen. Dramatisch, tragisch, aber auch sehr unterhaltsam. Nicht nur für Hemingway-Fans geeignet.
