AT THE HEMINGWAYS by Marcelline Hemingway Sanford


Email this review


Much more a life with father than a life with Ernest, older sister Marce's book is as subtitled, A Family Portrait. Fond are her memories of her grandparents, uncles and aunts, a gentle, talented mother and her five sisters and brothers. Ernest gets the expected emphasis and he is seen growing up, going away to be a reporter and finally estranged from his parents. With Dr. Hemingway's death, by his own hand, the ""family closeness"" ends and so does Marce's memoir.. It is all in all, unpretentious, warmhearted and often heartwarming, though it will have its greatest relevance as a frame for the portrait of this artist as a young man.
