Ernest Hemingway was an involuntary chameleon, who would shift seamlessly from a self-cultivated image of hero, aesthetic radical, and existential non-conformist to a figure made up at various points of selfishness, hypocrisy, self-delusion, narcissism and arbitrary vindictiveness.

Richard Bradford shows that Hemingway's work is by parts erratic and unique because it was tied into these unpredictable, bizarre features of his personality. Impressionism and subjectivity will always play some part in the creation of literary works but Hemingway was unique. He was a compulsive liar who eventually became unable to distinguish between the fantasies he spun for family and friends and the stories he told in his fiction.

They are the writer's private signature, their authorial fingerprint. In this ground-breaking and intensely revealing biography, which includes a complete reassessment of Hemingway's oeuvre Hemingway's unfixed personality is shown to be the index to why and how he wrote as he did.

Richard Bradford is Research Professor in English at Ulster University, Northern Ireland and Visiting Professor at the University of Avignon, France.
