For many, Ernest Hemingway remains more a compilation of myths than a person: soldier, sportsman, lover, expat and, of course, writer. But the actual life beneath these various legends remains elusive; what did he look like as a laughing child or young soldier?

What was his handwriting like and what did he say in his most personal letters?

How did the train tickets he held on his way from France to Spain or across the American Midwest feel, and what kind of notes did he take on his journeys?

This remarkable book answers these questions. Featuring a foreword by Hemingway's son Patrick and an afterword by his grandson Sean, the book has the intimate feel of being a member of the family.

It tells the story of a major American icon through the objects he touched, the moments he saw, the thoughts he had every day. Beautifully designed, including over 400 dazzling images of him at every stage of his life along with the letters, notes and miscellany that made his life so rich, it is an intimate, illuminating portrait like no other. It is a one-of-a-kind, stunning tribute to one of the most titanic figures in literature.
