When Ernest Hemingway committed suicide in 1961 he left four unfinished works - A Moveable Feast, Islands in the Stream, The Garden of Eden, and an untitled work on his travels in Africa. The edited versions which have come down to readers and scholars of Hemingway appear as distinct, disjointed texts which fit oddly into his uvre. Through extensive literary detective work Burwell has uncovered substantial evidence which finds that Hemingway in fact designed the three published works as a trilogy, what she terms 'his own Portrait of the Artist'. She combines biographical and textual analysis to create a compelling document of a period of Hemingway's life which biographers have slenderly covered. This work will ensure that these little known works be critically re-appraised, and will certainly catalyse discussion among Hemingway's readers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This is a masterpiece. She now enters the ranks of the important Hemingway scholars. All of them will have to reckon with her book, and they will be citing it and arguing over it for years to come.' Robert Scholes
'Hemingway critics from now on will ignore her work at their peril, for it is one of those that will change the direction of Hemingway scholarship and that's no mean accomplishment.' Paul Smith
'The sense of discovery in her book ... should alone make this book one of the most sought-after of recent Hemingway texts.' Mark Spilka
