Ernest Hemingway's letters to his family and friends reveal a far more complex character than the tough-guy public persona he cultivated: here we find a devoted son, affectionate brother, infatuated lover and disciplined writer. Volume 1 of this first complete edition covers his experiences in the First World War and his arrival in Paris, offering first-hand insight into his creative process and the events and relationships that inspired his novels. With a detailed introduction, notes, chronology, illustrations and index.
