Paul Hendrickson & ‘Hemingway’s Boat’

Paul Hendrickson & ‘Hemingway’s Boat’


“A writer’s life can contain two conflicting existences, one of purely original genius and one of irreversible destructiveness.” That’s journalist Howell Raines on the crux of the story Paul Hendrickson tells in Hemingway’s Boat: Everything He Loved in Life and Lost. Through an exploration of the one constant in Ernest Hemingway’s life—his beloved boat, Pilar—and through a series of relationships not fully explored in previous Hemingway studies, Hendrickson brings remarkably fresh insight into one of the most chronicled literary figures of the 20th century.

Hendrickson joins a dazzling cast of biographers, novelists, and poets taking part in our 31st annual seminar this coming January—“Writers on Writers”—which will investigate the relationship of life to art and offer the opportunity to re-experience some of the world’s most enduring writers through the eyes of those who know them best. Registration is open now.
