Hemingway Arrives

I couldn't be more delighted than I am with the used hardback copy of "Papa Hemingway"  by A.E. Hotchner, that I received yesterday. I love Amazon especially for its used books. This one is a beauty.  3rd printing, 1966. Black and tan cloth binding with an"H" embossed on one corner. The pages are quite heavy and with those rough ruffled edges that I love. Not a mark on the pages that have mellowed over the last 50 years to a soft cream hue. All that for  $4.00.  Absolutely a bargain at twice the price.
