Hemingway Rides Santa’s Sleigh
I am sharing with you one of Hemingway’s most controversial novels, The Garden of Eden this holiday season. What was different about this novel was its contemporary vibe. Hemingway was clearly exploring gender roles, transgenderism, and sexuality between the pages of his book. There is just SO MUCH to talk about. It’s definitely a book that requires reading several times to explore all of the diverse issues. This is a bookshelf staple! Click HERE to read my full post on this classic.
“The last uncompleted novel of Ernest Hemingway, published posthumously in 1986, charts the life of a young American writer and his glamorous wife who fall for the same woman.
A sensational bestseller when it appeared in 1986, The Garden of Eden is the last uncompleted novel of Ernest Hemingway, which he worked on intermittently from 1946 until his death in 1961. Set on the Côte d’Azur in the 1920s, it is the story of a young American writer, David Bourne, his glamorous wife, Catherine, and the dangerous, erotic game they play when they fall in love with the same woman. “A lean, sensuous narrative…taut, chic, and strangely contemporary,” The Garden of Eden represents vintage Hemingway, the master “doing what nobody did better” (R. Z. Sheppard, Time).”
