Mrs Hemingway

Author: Naomi Wood

Review: Lulu Hamdan

For those who love a good fictionalised biography, this page turner – creatively told from the perspective of Ernest Hemingway’s four wives in turn – will have you thinking about it when you’re not actively trying to finish it. It’s a peek into the dynamic love life of the prolific writer, one that is drenched in alcohol, parties, affairs and tales of war. Through Wood’s descriptive writing, your imagination will travel to the 1920s, bringing to life decadent fashion and dazzling summer parties that take place at a summer house in Antibes, South of France and in Cuba. And that’s just the beginning!
