Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This engaging and detailed biography will be valued for its accessible style and honest portrayal of one of America’s icons. Reef’s account of Hemingway’s life is riveting and unglamorized.” School Library Journal
“A perceptive, captivating biography of one of the twentieth century’s most influential writers.” Booklist (starred review)
“Reef creates a memorable portrait of the writer and his times, and even readers too young for most of Hemingway’s oeuvre will enjoy armchair traveling to the bullfights in Spain…Along the way, they will gain a sense of the writer and his times and will even pick up some writing tips, including Hemingway’s insistence on simple, declarative sentences.” Kirkus Reviews
