Experience Hemingway’s firsthand chronicle of a brutal season of bullfights
in Spain. In the 1950s, Hemingway and his wife return to Spain, where
Hemingway had visited before as a war correspondent to cover the Spanish
Civil War, in order to see friends and follow bullfighting events.
Hemingway’s time in Spain is most often remembered as his experiences with
bullfighting, his passion often conveyed through his writing. He and his
wife follow summer-long series events and witness the complexities and
danger within the bullfighting community. In this vivid account, Hemingway
captures the exhausting pace and pressure of the season, the camaraderie
and pride of the matadors, and the mortal drama as in fight after fight the
rival matadors try to outdo each other with ever more daring performances.
At the same time, Hemingway offers an often complex and deeply personal
self-portrait that reveals much about one of the twentieth century's
preeminent writers.
