A winning combination of No.1 travel writer Michael Palin and one of the great literary figures of the century.

When Michael Palin was researching for his novel HEMINGWAY'S CHAIR his interest was stimulated by Hemingway's appetite for travel and 'Papa's' evocations of the places he knew. Hemingway remains a compelling figure, and Palin's goal was to revisit Hemingway's world.

This book includes the American West ('wide lawns and narrow minds'), Idaho, Michigan ('fly fishing, hunting'), Europe in the First World (where Hemingway was wounded serving in the Ambulance Brigade), Cuba (where Hemingway wrote FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS), Paris in the Roaring Twenties and Spain during the Spanish Civil War, Sun Valley and Key West - where the Hemingway lookalike competition is an annual event.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A glorious travel book. There's never a dull moment, either, in the stunning photography or the entertaining travel notes - Daily Mail

His easy-going charm and passion for discovery are captivating - Daily Express

He observes shrewdly, writes wittily; laughs with, not at, the people he meets, and charmingly slips in a huge amount of information. His approach still towers above its imitators - Independent

Palin is the Python we all want to go abroad with - Observer

Palin is as engaging a writer as he is a presenter, and one keeps turning the pages with anticipation and pleasure - Sunday Telegraph
