In 1948, A. Hotchner went to Cuba to ask Ernest Hemingway to write an article on The Future of Literature for Cosmopolitan magazine. The article never materialized, but from that first meeting at the El Floridita bar in Havana until Hemingway’s death in 1961, Hotchner and the Nobel and Pulitzer Prize–winning author developed a deep and abiding friendship.

Thankfully, Hotchner took it all down. Papa Hemingway provides fascinating details about Hemingway’s daily routine, including the German army belt he wore and his habit of writing descriptive passages in longhand and dialogue on a typewriter, and documents his memories of Gertrude Stein, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Martha Gellhorn, Marlene Dietrich, and many of the twentieth century’s most notable artists and celebrities

Between 1948 and 1961, Ernest Hemingway and A. E. Hotchner traveled together from New York to Paris to Spain, fished the waters off Cuba, hunted in Idaho, ran with the bulls in Pamplona—and once Hotchner even masqueraded as a matador and Hemingway's manager in an actual bullfight. Everywhere they went, they talked. For fourteen years, Hotchner and Hemingway shared their thoughts and as Hemingway reminisced about his childhood, recalled the Paris literary scene of the twenties, and recounted the real events that lay behind his fiction, Hotchner took it all down. His notes on the many occasions he spent with his friend Papa—in Venice and Rome, in Key West, on the Riviera, and in Ketchum, Idaho, where Hemingway died by his own hand in 1961—provide the material for this utterly profound, and truthfully compassionate best-selling memoir about the Nobel and Pulitzer Prize-winning author. With a new introduction by the author and with never before published photographs from his personal collection, Papa Hemingway is a mesmerizing portrait.
Comments to eBook Papa Hemingway: A Personal Memoir
Quashant
I read "Papa Hemingway" many years ago in Germany...and in German. Always having been a huge fan of Hemingway, I read this book from first to last page, without putting it down once.
Then I read it a second time; in the English original version. I was even more amazed and in awe... A.E. Hotchner's biography is absolutely stunning; it is not only beautifully written...it is authentic and sincere, it is filled with conflicting emotions; it simply is utterly captivating.
No other Hemingway biography (and I've painfully worked my way through several) comes even somewhat close to Hotchner's superb depiction of Ernest Hemingway; the man, the writer, the lover, the hedonistic and complex character he truly was.
A brilliant book.

(I have read it at least 4 times by now; it never gets boring.)

Hotchner brought Papa to life. The book held my attention and interest from cover to cover. Constantly found myself reading between the lines and behind the scenes. This biography provided information that has made reading Papa's works more insightful and relatable to the author.

A great memoir that provided a couple of details I hadn't found in other sources. While it's clear Hotchner is giving a largely glowing presentation of Hemingway's persona, it's a refreshing read after slogging through some of the hatchet jobs of more recent years.
Gardagar
Hotchner did some great work here. He doesn't pretend to know the man better than he actually did.

The memoirs start at their first meeting and are the perfect balance of narrative, anecdote and personal interpretation. The last 40-50 pages aren't as gripping (in my mind) as the first 250, but that is in no way a detraction from Hotchner's work. Hemingway himself becomes so different by the end of his life that it's like reading about a different man. Nonetheless, it goes a long way to answer some of the questions I'd always had.

Loved it. Would, and do, recommend!

Heartwarming, funny, tragic, and brilliant. A.E. Hotchner's account of his years-long friendship with one of America's greatest writers is astounding to read. The last part of the story detailing Hemingway's decline is heartbreaking. I read this book years before, and this recent re-reading was just as good as the first time I read it.
Shaktit
A factual chronicle of their friendship and shared experiences. An informative & enjoyable read. Appreciate the personal perspective. Not gossipy.
Mori
Quite a balancing act - I could not have done it. Shocked to learn of the last year of Hemingway's life. Fear it myself, not being able to write. How could Hotch have stood it? Sharp writing, detailed, completely self-effacing. A good read.
Love this book. I read it many years ago and wanted to read again before I read his books! It gives a comprehensive view of what was happening in his life as each of his books were being written. Definitely a must read for fans of his books!
