2011: The Year of Hemingway

2011 proved that everything Hemingway is still hot. Fifty years after his suicide, a book about the author titled  Hemingway’s Boat: Everything He Loved in Live and Lost 1934 – 1961 by Paul Hendrickson was published. Hendrickson’s book is a look at Hemingway’s relationship with his beloved boat, Pilar.

The best-selling novel The Paris Wife by Paula McLain also hit the New York Times Best Seller List, a fictionalized account of Hemingway’s first wife, Hadley Richardson. To top the year off, Woody Allen parodied Hemingway in his hit movie Midnight in Paris.

Last year showed us that any day is a day to celebrate the famed author and definitely not just A Moveable Feast.
