A sensational bestseller when it appeared in 1986, The Garden of Eden is the last uncompleted novel of Ernest Hemingway, which he worked on intermittently from 1946 until his death in 1961. Set on the Côte d'Azur in the 1920s, it is the story of a young American writer, David Bourne, his glamorous wife, Catherine, and the dangerous, erotic game they play when they fall in love with the same woman. "A lean, sensuous narrative...taut, chic, and strangely contemporary," The Garden of Eden represents vintage Hemingway, the master "doing what nobody did better" (R. Z. Sheppard, Time).

The Garden of Eden is a meandering character profile of a crazy rich woman and a relatively sane male writer. Luxurious in setting, sparse in details. 3.5/5 Leggi recensione completa

This was the first Hemingway I ever took a stab at, and the first book I've finished in a very long time. This wasn't a nail-biter and I wasn't clamoring to know what was going to happen next, but I ... Leggi recensione completa

Informazioni sull'autore (2002)

Ernest Hemingway did more to change the style of English prose than any other writer of his time. Publication of The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms immediately established Hemingway as one of the greatest literary lights of the twentieth century. His classic novella The Old Man and the Sea won the Pulitzer Prize in 1953. Hemingway was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954. He died in 1961.
