I'm looking for a resource of the interior of Hemmingway's house in Key West and Havana.  Any suggestions?

 

Thanx,

ed

Photos of the interior of the Finca can be found in Hilary Hemingway's book Hemingway In Cuba. Don't pay too much attention to the text, just look at the pictures.

PS: Hemingway is spelled with one m.

RE;   HILARY Hemingway
mike...sorry i could not resist posting my critique of Hemingway in Cuba when i saw this thread
( I am choosing my words carefully so as to be polite)


Hunting With Hemingway by Hilary Hemingway is about the only book about
Ernest Hemingway,  her uncle, that I could not finish.  Leicester's novel
The Sound Of The Trumpet didn't do much for me either,  At  least he was
trying to write fiction.  Hilary writes what can only be described as
fantasy. I would give her the benefit of the doubt and classify it as roman
a clef,  but she provides no attribution other than audio tapes which she
claims to have tossed into the Gulf Stream.

Along comes Hilary's Hemingway in Cuba. Well, the pictures are nice, though
the sepia effect, in my opinion, is more effective when used sparingly.

 Arrrrg!  Then there is the prose...hackneyed, clichéd, filled with dialogue
in some sections more suited to Mills and Boone.

  Ernest's tryst with Jane Mason at the Ambos Mundos for example;

'Ernest closed the wooden shutters and turned to find that Jane had
stretched out across his bed.  He moved toward her.

""Tell me of your thoughts, daughter."


I guess I  should not blame Hilary for making a buck off EH.

Heck, there is even a guy out there somewhere trying to write a book about
Ernest's belt buckle!  I found a bit of the manuscript  in a bottle today on
the beach  here in Sussex,  washed ashore no doubt  by the same Gulf Stream
that swallowed Hilary's tapes.

Here is an excerpt..

' The Finca was quiet, the servants taking a noon day siesta.  Mary had gone
into town to buy food and liquor for the party that evening.

Ernest closed the wooden shutters as Marlene fumbled with the catch on his
Gott Mit Uns buckle.

"Tell me of your thoughts,  Daughter." Ernest chuckled.

"Well", The Krout laughed,  "God may be on your side, but I don't think Mary
would like it very much!"

Nicely put Tom. Agree with you totally regarding Hilary's two Hemingway books, although the photos are great in the Cuba book. She is a writer of science fiction books. Perhaps much of that mindset has spilled over onto her writing about her uncle. Great to have you back on the board also. Say, who is this lunatic writing this Belt Buckle book anyway?

Tom: I, for one, am glad you found that bottle, and to see you back.

Can't help noting with glee ads on this link for shutters and belt buckles, I'm guessing for all those earnest Ernest look-alikes to engage in similar experiences.

Allbest, and I've got mine too, for the winter ,

Hijo,

Who couldn't use some good faux wood shutters and some great LED Belt Buckles!?

thanks gentlemen for your kind words.  i have a high regard for this site, and it is a pleasure to be back.  i've been in self-imposed seclusion trying to get some  writing done,  and this fellow PARKINSONS Iwrestle with on a daily basis has been winning a few rounds.  If i could strangle him with my Gott Mit Uns belt, I would.

Lg..WITH APOLOGIES FOR MOVING THIS THREAD FURTHER OFF THE INITIAL TOPIC...THERE ARE TWO THINGS ON A LONG LIST OF REASONS WHY I UTTERLY DETEST THE MAN IN THE WHITE-HOUSE..

 

ONE, WHICH HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HEMINGWAY BUT DOES HAVE TO DO WITH OUR DISEASE  IS THE FACT THAT BUSH CUT ALL FEDERAL FUNDING FOR STEM CELL RESEARCH.  THIS OF COURSE DUE TO PRESSURE FROM THE FUNDAMENTALIST BORN AGAIN RIGHT-WING CHRISTIAN ANTI-ABORTION COALITION WHO CONSIDER UNFERTILIZED EGGS ON A PETRI DISH MORE IMPORTANT THAN THOSE OF US WITH PARKINSONS, M-S, AND A HOST OF OTHER DISEASES..

 

THE OTHER WHICH IS APPROPRIATE TO THIS FORUM..IS THE FACT THAT BUSH HAS STOPPED FUNDING FROM PRIVATE PHILANTROPICAL SOURCES FOR RESTORATION OF TIHE FINCA VIGIA ON GROUNDS THAT THE MUSEO HEMINGWAY IS A TOURIST ATTRACTION AND 'THESE PEOPLE (THE CUBANS) ARE OUR ENEMY!"

 

WELL, THEY SURE AS HELL ARE NOT MY ENEMY...WHY IS THIS MAN SO HELL BENT ON MAKING WAR WITH ANY PERSON OR COUNTRY THAT CHOOSE NOT TO BE DOMINATED BY THE USA?

Hi Tom

What were the letters etched on the back of the Gott Mit Uns buckle?

An ' H ' and an ' N ' ?

I tried finding out from an old post on the old HRC Message Board but the post was no longer on the board.

Best

Paul

Larry...we will be up in Wellesley for my 40th High School Reunion next weekend. Probably no time to get together but I will bring your cell phone # in case.
