Hemingway Biographer A.E. Hotchner

A.E. Hotchner's book Papa Hemingway (Carroll & Graff) is about his friend and colleague, Ernest Hemingway. Hotchner met Hemingway when he was a 20-something journalist, on assignment to interview Hemingway for Cosmopolitan magazine. That first interview in 1948 developed into a 14 year friendship. In 1957, he wrote The World of Nick Adams, a dramatization of Hemingway's Nick Adams stores for CBS. The TV special starred Paul Newman and was scored by Aaron Copland.
