In his latest book, bestselling author Mark Kurlansky focuses on the sprawling life and work of Ernest Hemingway while drawing parallels to his own. This memoir and biography contains an in-depth analysis of the places and people in Hemingway's life.

"The ghost of Hemingway has haunted and inspired at least three generations of American writers. Mark Kurlansky is no exception, and his detailed, self-deprecating account of the presence of that ghost is as brilliantly revealing of Hemingway as it is of Kurlansky himself."
--Russell Banks, author of Continental Drift, Cloudsplitter, and Lost Memory of Skin, among other works of fiction

Mark Kurlansky's articles have appeared in a wide variety of newspapers and magazines, including The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Miami Herald, The Chicago Tribune, The Los Angeles Times, Time, The New York Times and many more. He has had 35 books published including fiction, nonfiction, and children's books. His books include Havana, Cod, Salt, Paper, The Basque History of the World, 1968: The Year That Rocked the World, and The Big Oyster, among other titles. He has received the Dayton Literary Peace Prize, Bon Appetit's Food Writer of the Year Award, the James Beard Award, and the Glenfiddich Award. He lives in New York City.

Village Books would like to thank the Miami Book Fair and Books and Books for organizing this event.
