"I should note that I am not a Hemingway fan. I'm really not. I think students should read him; I can tell you why he is an important writer, but that's about it. In her short story about an Hemingway scholar's discovery and the effects it has on his life, Claire Splan makes me want to read Hemingway. And honestly, isn't that the highest praise one can give of a well written story about an author? Well, that and it was funny." ~ Christine N. Ethier, Amazon verified purchaser
"Although it only took about 1/2 hour to read this short story, it was powerful and well executed. Ernest Hemingway fans in particular will enjoy this story about the finding of lost Hemingway manuscripts, but I think this story has global appeal, as well." ~ Amazon verified purchaser
"A good solid story, beautifully and economically written. This will be an absolute treat for Hemingway fans: a unique "What if?" tale, with lots of scholarly references to Ernest, his life, and his world. But it should also appeal to those who aren't Hemingway devotees or who aren't all that familiar with his stories. Nice story development, too, with the thoughtful "Hemingway-ification" of the main character. Papa would definitely approve." ~ Amazon verified purchaser
When some of Ernest Hemingway's long-lost manuscripts fall into the hands of a disillusioned Hemingway scholar, he gets a lesson in the fleeting nature of passion in this award-winning short story (24 pages/6,800 words).
