Waiting on Wednesday: Mrs. Hemingway
"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
My first selection is:
Mrs. Hemingway: a novel
Author: Naomi Wood
Expected publication: May 27, 2014 (although its already been published in the UK)
The Paris Wife was only the beginning of the story . . .
Paula McLain’s New York Times-bestselling novel piqued readers’ interest about Ernest Hemingway’s romantic life. But Hadley was only one of four women married, in turn, to the legendary writer. Just as T.C. Boyle’s bestseller The Women completed the picture begun by Nancy Horan’s Loving Frank, Naomi Wood’s Mrs. Hemingway tells the story of how it was to love, and be loved by, the most famous and dashing writer of his generation. Hadley, Pauline, Martha and Mary: each Mrs. Hemingway thought their love would last forever; each one was wrong.
Told in four parts and based on real love letters and telegrams, Mrs. Hemingway reveals the explosive love triangles that wrecked each of Hemingway's marriages. Spanning 1920s bohemian Paris through 1960s Cold War America, populated with members of the fabled "Lost Generation," Mrs. Heminway is a riveting tale of passion, love, and heartbreak.
I heard about this book through an episode of You Wrote The Book and was really intrigued with the premise of the book, especially since I had read The Paris Wife last summer.
What are you waiting on?
