Scholars, Historians, students, and readers will learn much from Ernest Miller Hemingway: A Workbook. Carlos Baker, Hemingway’s biographer said of the manuscript, “It is a wonderful and informative collection of Hemingway scholarship,” and gave the work its title. Hemingway’s majordomo in Cuba, Rene Villarreal, read the work in manuscript form and offered many insights and corrections to actual events. Dr. Edgar Grissom, who recently published the definitive bibliography, Ernest Hemingway, A Descriptive Bibliography, was instrumental in crafting much of the original work, especially where it dealt with the medical aspects of Hemingway’s life. Finally, John Evans, owner of Lemuria Books, in Jackson, Mississippi, was the originator of the idea for the work and supplied many of the research books and guidance during the project.
Hemingway’s life, from birth to death and beyond is covered in a unique and divisive format that all who studies the book will come away with much knowledge about the man, his life, and his work.
