LOOKING FOR HEMINGWAY Just months before turning sixty, Ernest Hemingway headed for Spain to write a new epilogue for his bullfighting classic Death in the Afternoon, as well as an article for Life magazine. His hosts were Bill and Anne Davis, wealthy Americans in pursuit of the avant-garde life of the 1920s post-war expatriates, who lavishly entertained celebrities and the literati, from Noel Coward to Laurence Olivier, at their historic villa, La Consula. This hacienda would become Hemingways home during the most pivotal months of the Nobel laureates denouement, and Bill Davisfellow adventurer who had survived the Depression running arms during the Spanish Civil Warwould become his friend and bullfight-traveling companion. Looking for Hemingway explores that incredible friendship and offers a rare intimate look into the final period of the legendary authors life, giving comprehension not only of a writers despair but of suicide as a not unreasonable conclusion to a blasted existence.
