Dear Papa, Dear Hotch PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Dear Papa, Dear Hotch free pdf "Dear Papa, Dear Hotch" presents for the first time the collected correspondence between literary giant Ernest Hemingway and his young friend and informal agent A E Hotchner. Hotchner, author of the well-known memoir "Papa Hemingway", served as the authorized adapter of Hemingway's stories for the stage, movies, and television. Spanning the final quarter of Hemingway's life from 1948 to 1961, the book includes more than 160 letters, cables, and cards between these two close friends. The correspondence begins with their initial meeting in Cuba and ends with their final encounter at the Mayo Clinic, where Hemingway was a patient. In the years between, they hunt game in Idaho and visit Hemingway's old haunts on an automobile trip through Italy and France. In Spain, Hotchner attends his first bullfight and, with Hemingway as his manager, enters the ring himself as a matador under the sobriquet El Pecas (The Freckled One) Revealing Hemingway's preoccupation with his physical condition, the collection closes with sobering glimpses into the psychological turmoil that eventually led to his suicide in 1961. DeFazio presents the letters in a chronological "clear-text" format, in which only the author's final intention is transcribed within the body of the edition. All cancellations, alterations, and corrections are listed in the notes at the back of the book. DeFazio also provides alternative readings and offers textual commentary that will enable readers to reconstruct most of the features of the original manuscripts and envelopes. This exciting collection of letters between two extremely lively and interesting characters will provide much valuable information about Hemingway's late career.
