The Short and Wonderful Life of Henry Hemingway
Ships in 3-5 business days
Fred Schäfer takes on two of the 20th Century’s literary giants. The story takes off when he arrives in New York. Miraculously, he meets an old mate of Hemingway’s from the Toronto Star. He enjoys a bevy of buxom beauties, in true Miller style. Not as macho as Ernest, Fred manages to inject the book with a unique philosophy, somewhere between Schopenhauer and Bob Dylan.
There are scenes that will stay in my memory, like the time he visits Rachel’s English class and speaks about his radical reading of The Great Gatsby. Or the time he stays up all night with his Mexican hosts in California, arguing about Schopenhauer and predetermination.
Bruce L. Russell, Author of Channelling Henry (Fremantle Press, 2003). -- Henry Miller’s son Tony wrote about The Short and Wonderful Life of Henry Hemingway: “Dear Fred ... I really laughed out loud about our casual meeting. You have such a good way with words ... I am totally delighted by your book.”
