While looking for this long-elusive book by (the late) Michael Reynolds, I was pleased to see it once again available through the usual online suspects.  It must have been reprinted.  Anyway, good news for schlubs like me who didn't have it.

  That is good news.  I know how that particular book has been calling to you from the ether of unobtained books.  It's a fine read.

I've read three of the five-volume Reynolds biography ... that one is next.

Could somebody post a link? Or maybe a brief description. I know nothing about the book and wasn't able to find it online.

Hey Woyzeck9,

Here's a link to the book at Amazon.com in paperback:

Hemingway:  The Homecoming

Book Description
This third volume of Michael Reynolds's extraordinary evocation of Hemingway's life finds the American writer in Paris in 1926 having just finished The Sun Also Rises, and follows him through the dissolution of his first marriage and the beginning of his second. We witness the emergence of the public image of Hemingway and his development into a mature and major literary talent. Most significantly, Reynolds reveals how the emerging Hemingway hero--tough, masculine, self-reliant--represented a radical break from figures in his earlier work, who are vulnerable, wounded survivors living precariously in a world in which they have little control. And he shows how this transition had its roots in Hemingway's own life, as he developed from a rootless and insecure expatriate into the forceful figure of myth, influenced by his father's suicide, his second marriage, and his return to America.



Didn't this first get published as Hemingway:  The American Homecoming ?

All of the Reynolds books are great reading.

Just finished reading "The Homecoming" -- like every one of the late Michael Reynolds' five volumes, it was superb.

I cannot recommend Reynolds' work too highly. It is so well-written and intelligent that the books are the fastest reads I have ever experienced.

I'm just starting the last volume I have to read: "Young Hemingway."

Yeah, I read them all out of order.

Glad you liked it, Rob.  Just ordered my copy after much procrastinating.  Looks like they retooled the book's font, as it used to be a very small and italicized mess.  Anyway, it'll be good to see that cover with Hem's skylight scar in all it's damaging glory.

I'm four chapters into the book now and it makes for some jumpy reading, but it's still good reading. The narrative takes Papa from Paris to Switzerland to Madrid and back again and all the while Reynolds keeps us informed as to Hem's publishing progress.  Can't wait for Wemedge to dump Hadley and settle down with Pauline!  Ernest's happiness is my happiness...

 

Speaking of Reynolds, here's an obit:  http://books.guardian.co.uk/departments/biography/story/0,60 00,359054,00.html

  Papa Doble,

  I'm tired of your rude remarks concerning Hadley.  It may not be in these circles but my love for her is well documented.  I even bought a book about her.  But Pauline leads to key West and KW is my where my mind/heart lives.  Glad you like it.
