What the book lacks is organization

While it would seem that there is no more to be written about the man or his work, new books continue to be written; among them is The Best Friend I Ever Had: Revelations about Ernest Hemingway from those who knew him by David Nuffer. David Nuffer's fascination with Ernest Hemingway (July 21, 1899 - July 2, 1961) in 1971 when he read a library copy of For Whom the Bell Tolls. What the book lacks is organization. Nuffer's enthusiasm for Hemingway carries the first couple chapters but it's not enough to lead the book to a satisfying conclusion.

David knew they were proud of that. But once the deadly following started he was useless to them and a danger to their success just as Kibo had been to him when he had gone up close to the elephant in the night, and he knew they must each have hated themselves for not having sent him back when there was time. David was sure that they would kill him now because he, David, had lasted through the day and kept up after the pace had destroyed him by noon.

Here are 30 of the wisest things ’’Papa’’ ever said (Hemingway didn’t like to be called by his first name, preferring ’’Papa’’ instead, as his sons and admirers from around the world called him). Life should never daunt you. Never be daunted. Remember that the friends of Judah were impeccable. By just looking at pictures without prejudice, and reading books with as open a mind as you have, you live life.

The American author Ernest Hemingway was one of the most influential writers of the twentieth century. His machine-like style was precise and austere, but he also had a deft and gentle turn of phrase which gave his work its own peculiar beauty and power. He was a master of the action genre, but he also wrote passionately about love and life, war and work. Here is a selection of the best of these books below: Cover courtesy of Scribner.

I have been reading Hemingway, indeed studying his work, sense well before his death. I have been collecting and reading Hemingway biographies for well over forty years now. You can imagine my delight when I heard about this work. Every bit of information I can collect adds something to my knowledge and adds to what my family refers to as my hobby. I was not disappointed with this work.

David Nuffer has spent quite a number of years now collecting the works of Hemingway, memorabilia, such as photographs and items of interest, and most importantly, seeking out and interviewing people who actually knew this complex writer and American icon. I received Nuffer's book, sat down and read it from cover to cover nonstop. It was well worth the read!

The author has interviewed a number of characters that are often overlooked by his biographers, i.e. those common folk who knew him on a daily basis, worked, hunted, fished and socialized with him. These people are not the usual pack of literary giants, publishers, movie actors and actresses, etc. we normally find in such work; but rather, for the most part, just simply people. By recoding these conversations we are allowed a peek into the life of Earnest Hemingway that is not often seen nor even considered. The author has also spent years traveling the globe visiting the places Hemingway lived, traveled, played and worked.

I was particularly interested in several previously unpublished letters, which are actually pseudo-medical records, from the Mayo Clinic which I was unaware of. Having spent much of my professional life in medical risk management I have reviewed and analyzed literally thousands and thousands of medical records over the years and am able to smell a dead carp at five miles. These documents are important as they do shed some light on Hemingway's ultimate tragic death. I only wish we had access to all the records. The letters this author does publish tell us much, in particular if we read between the lines.

This little book is well put together, written in a very articulate style and is full of unique pictures, some never published before.

Like many, even though I love Earnest Hemingway's writing, I must admit to being even more fascinated with Hemingway the man even more than Hemingway the writer. This book is a wonderful addition to my collection and has added to my knowledge. The author has done some fine work here.
I do highly recommend this one.

At the author's request, I read and reviewed this wonderful book.
The work cites many things ; such as, the 252 books in the
Hemingway collection. Ernest was born to a middle class family
of Chicago. He liked to hunt, fish, camp and the thrill of
adventure. In "True at First Light", Ernest stated
" When you stop doing things for fun, you might as well be dead".
This statement is perfect advice for anyone contemplating a
career in a plethora of professions and/or pastimes.

There are a number of fabulous black/white pictures in the book.
For instance, "Papastone" is a luck charm given to Nita Jensen Houk
by Hemingway. Another photo shows Nita Houk herding cats at
Hemingway's Finca Vigia in Cuba. The author exudes shear
camaraderie while in the company of fellow jai alai pals
at Finca Vigia. The handwritten letters are very revealing.

Ernest Hemingway won the Nobel Prize in 1954 when I was
2 years of age. Let me reproduce his Nobel Comments
delivered by Ambassador John C. Cabot. The Ambassador made
the speech in place of the author. At the time, Ernest
was ill and unable to attend the festivities in his honor.

"Having no facility for speech-making and
no command of oratory nor any domination of rhetoric,
I wish to thank the administrators of the generosity
of Alfred Nobel for this Prize.

No writer who knows the great writers who did not receive
the Prize can accept it other than with humility. There is
no need to list these writers. Everyone here may make
his own list according to his knowledge and his conscience.

It would be impossible for me to ask the Ambassador of my
country to read a speech in which a writer said all of the
things which are in his heart. Things may not be immediately
discernible in what a man writes, and in this sometimes he is
fortunate; but eventually they are quite clear and by these
and the degree of alchemy that he possesses he will endure
or be forgotten.

Writing, at its best, is a lonely life. Organizations for
writers palliate the writer's loneliness but I doubt if
they improve his writing. He grows in public stature as
he sheds his loneliness and often his work deteriorates.
For he does his work alone and if he is a good enough
writer he must face eternity, or the lack of it,
each day.

For a true writer each book should be a new beginning where
he tries again for something that is beyond attainment.
He should always try for something that has never been
done or that others have tried and failed. Then sometimes,
with great luck, he will succeed.

How simple the writing of literature would be if it
were only necessary to write in another way what has been
well written. It is because we have had such great writers
in the past that a writer is driven far out past where
he can go, out to where no one can help him.

I have spoken too long for a writer. A writer should write
what he has to say and not speak it. Again I thank you."

In the "Introduction to the Treasury of the Free World",
Hemingway stated the following:

" No weapon has ever settled a moral problem.
It can impose a solution but it cannot guarantee it to
be a just one. You can wipe out your opponents.
But if you do it unjustly you become eligible for
being wiped out yourself. "

From reading this work by David Nuffer, I got a sense of
the Cuban community at mid-century. While in college,
I had two professors from the Universidad La Havana, Cuba.
Drs. Prieto taught me Ordinary Differential Equations.
He used to appear in class with a grey suit, white shoes
and Cuban cigars. Despite having had some difficulty in
English, he was a great teacher because every equation
was explained in great detail. I had another teacher
(also from Cuba) . His name was Prof. Joshua Zia.
He taught us Probability/Statistical Inference with
a background of Intermediate Calculus.

Again, he was a great teacher although he rarely gave
partial credit- no matter how difficult the question.
He used to say the following: " When you build a bridge
and the bridge falls down- you don't get partial credit".

Needless to say, I did well in both classes, although the
work was quite considerable.

Anyone with even a limited interest in Ernest Hemingway will find "The Best Friend I Ever Had" riveting. I was captivated from the start, and found it almost impossible to put down. It's a rare book that is worth exchanging sleep for reading, and this beautifully written loving tribute to one of our greatest authors is one of those rarities.

David Nuffer has been an Hemingway enthusiast since 1958, and has been to many places connected with Hemingway (some written about in Nuffer's "A Walkable Feast") and in this book he has interviewed those closest to Hemingway. Perhaps because of their mutual interest and rapport, and Nuffer's remarkable talent as writer, conversations with people like Tillie Arnold, who was Hemingway's best friend during the years he lived in Ketchum, Idaho, become magically alive and bring forth information never before published.

Nuffer takes us to Finca Vigia and the famous La Floridita bar in Cuba, Key West, Florida, and many more places of interest with the interesting people who knew that champion of living life to its fullest, Papa Hemingway. There is extensive correspondence with Mary, Hemingway's 4th and last wife, and a chapter where Nuffer visits 2nd son Patrick. The book is filled with marvelous photos, and is an unforgettable look at a complex, creative and fascinating man, a man who touched the world with his genius.
