About the Author

Ernest Hemingway did more to influence the style of English prose than any other writer of his time. Publication of The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms immediately established him as one of the greatest literary lights of the 20th century. His classic novella The Old Man and the Sea won the Pulitzer Prize in 1953. Hemingway was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954. He died in 1961.

Reviews

"[An] account of a hunting safari on the Serengeti Plains, a chronicle of adventure and a literary challenge Hemingway set up for himself. Anticipating by decades Truman Capote's 'nonfiction novel, ' the classic 'In Cold Blood, ' Hemingway wanted to prove that 'an absolutely true book' can 'compete with a work of the imagination.'"--Hillel Italie, Associated Press "The true joy lies in reading in Hemingway's prose again: precise, lyrical, unwinding in long sentences, suggesting more than it reveals, sumptuous in its descriptions of the valleys, ravines, salt-licks, hills and forests of his beloved Africa. What I really want to do is quote great swaths of his style at its most beautiful, hypnotic and expert."--Sam Coale, Providence Journal "[Hemingway's wife, Pauline's] engaging, laconic observations offer yet another lens through which to witness Hemingway at large in the world, while also helping the reader gauge how much, or how little, Hemingway reshaped the reality of his experiences in order to express, to his own satisfaction, his fondness for the hunt, his affinity for the natural world, and his abiding love of 'the dark continent' itself....With its journal entries, an insightful foreword, and a moving introduction by Hemingway's sons, and some charming 'letters from Africa' that Hemingway published in Esquire...the reissue of this book is an opportunity, a reminder, to dive in again to a title we probably haven't thought about for years....Encountering the book again after all these years, it's hard not to marvel, page after page, at Hemingway's singular gift for pure, descriptive prose."--The Daily Beast
