"That is a great quote, and like everyone else, I haven't been able to attribute it to Hemingway either.  Thanks for the article Robert."

Hemingway's First War and the Art of Not Being There

Posted on April 16, 2008 at 2:48pm 2 Comments

I started re-reading Michael Reynold's Hemingway's First War, an account of the writing process behind Hemingway's A Farewell to Arms. In the introduction Reynold's really captures Hemingway's genius when he discusses how so many experts on the war in Italy and the retreat from Caporetto in particular, adamantly believed Hemingway must have been an eyewitness to have written about it in such vivid detail. In reality, Hemingway hadn't been there during the time in which the novel takes place and… Continue

Hi Mark, I had a friend who was a B-17 pilot in the 8th (he lived here on the island). He was shot down over Dusseldorf in  Sept. 44 and spen the rest of the war as a guest of the Nazis. He was liberated by the Russians in 45 and made his way back to US lines. We were working on his memoir but he passed away suddenly this past Sept. at age 90. He was one Hell of a guy and had more eneergy at 90 than I do at 61. I miss him terribly. I've attached a photo of him I took when the B-17 Nine O Nine visited nantucket Island a few years ago. When Bruno turned 85 he flew the Nine O Nine from nantucket Island to Plymouth, MA. What a great birthday present.

My Dad was a flyer in the Army Air Corps during the war and two of my uncles were in the Navy and one in the Marines during the war so I've had an interest in all things WWII since I was a child.

Hi Mark, I've been away from the board for the past couple of years doing an intense study of WWII (I'm actually still in the process). BUT, I'm back. I see things are a bit slow here and I've checked the old board and see that nothing new has been posted there for over a year.  Hope things pick up in the Fall. How are things with you?

I do have the Reynolds book.

I also found more references to Toby in another book I just picked up. Apparently he built the wall around Hemingway's Key West home.

I'm hoping to have a complete first draft by the New Year. I'm up to my ears in research, but I really enjoy being immersed in the world of Hemingway.

I do have a strange question, and one I haven't yet been able to find the answer to--Do you know the ethnicity of Hemingway's friend Toby Bruce? Bruce was his driver/handyman, etc. in Key West in the 30s, and I can't get a clear picture of him from anything I've read.
