REVIEW FROM BOOKS FOR HER:
Next stop on my great Hemingway-as-fiction freight train: a foray into Papa’s second wife days in Key West, through the eyes of an intrepid local maid who (surprise) catches his attention. The third point of the triangle, a strong and steady World War I soldier, implies a somewhat formulaic story. But the vibrant Mariella is no average protagonist, and this little unexpected story turns out to be more than just a fun foray into Hemingway’s women- fictional and otherwise- but something of a coming-of-age story about choices, friendship, and the parts we play in the lives of others.
