All of us who know about America know Ernest Hemingway because he is an essential part of the land’s literature. But his personal life was never discussed; he himself never talked about it on the screen or in the media and his works too have no connection with it. Thus none tried to unveil because people thought that the personal life never had the worth and now all of a sudden Nicholas Reynolds reveals something disastrous.
Nicholas too was in the CIA and during that era he discovered a few odd things about Hemingway. Hemingway was a writer but a spy as well who worked for the CIA in the Second World War and lead out several serious missions keeping his identity hidden from the American public too. Not only did he served America but he was in demand with the soviets too who though that he because of his journalism fame can sneak into different sensitive places without being noticed. He was the ideal personality who could complete missions in places like Cuba as well.
The author also raises a point related to the last novel The Old Man and the Sea that show same sort of struggles. Thus people who thought that Hemingway’s work was not affected by his personal experiences were wrong after all.
Fred Sanders narration is unobjectionable in all respects; quite a skill was needed for this book that raises many controversies related to the one who is still considered as an icon in American literature by many of the new short story writers. Overall the book is worth to read for those who are interested in the life of this legend.
