Finding the Places and People That Influenced the Writer
by Dennis L. Noble
Ernest Hemingway spent about one-third of his life in Cuba and grew to love the country and its people. This travel narrative follows a journey across the island in search of Hemingway’s Cuba and how it influenced some of his writings. The author seeks out Hemingway’s haunts in Old Havana and his home in Finca Vigia and explores the north coast fishing village of Cojimar, his setting for The Old Man and the Sea. Along the way there are glimpses of Cuban geography and history, as well as the lives of modern Cubans.
