Hemingway's Havana: A Writer's City In Words And Images
Since his return from a thirty-seven day visit to Havana in 2015, Robert has completed his manuscript, Hemingway’s Havana: A Writer’s City In Words And Images. Robert’s literary agent, Peter Riva of International Transactions, is currently representing the manuscript.
Although political uncertainty continues to drift in the air, Cuba is making headway and headlines each day now in its quest to help end the longstanding embargo with the United States. The story of Ernest Hemingway and Cuba, however, still invites intrigue and drives tourists to this island nation, as Hemingway continues to live in the hearts of those who knew him and knew of him. Through lovely color photographs and evocative prose, Hemingway’s Havana: A Writer’s City In Words And Images, illustrates the warm connection that “Papa” shared with the people, and with the culture, of Cuba. Within the whitewashed walls of the Finca Vigía, located just outside Havana in the small town of San Francisco de Paula, Hemingway lived, worked, loved, and belonged. This book will tell the story of why Hemingway felt most at home in Cuba, and illustrate the beauty of the people and the island-setting that most inspired him. As well, Hemingway’s Havana will be a valuable asset to anyone planning to travel to this extraordinary country…anyone who wishes to brush up against the past by experiencing the Cuban community that helped inspire and nurture the writer and the person, Ernest Hemingway.
