Writer Sailor Soldier Spy - Nicholas Reynolds

Staff Pick

This is a fascinating exploration of Hemingway's unique role in global espionage. Hemingway, known as much for his lifestyle as his literature, fought on the front lines of the Spanish Civil War and World War II, visited Communists in China, and fended off U-Boats in the Caribbean. A rabid anti-fascist, Hemingway was recruited by both the KGB and the CIA, and this struggle led to the writer’s block and disillusionment that ultimately caused his demise. Drawing on newly declassified information, Reynolds paints Hemingway as a “gifted, but overconfident amateur” in the world of espionage who nevertheless found his way to the front lines of history.
