ERNEST HEMINGWAY – ACROSS THE RIVER AND INTO THE TREES

175.00

Published by Jonathan Cape, 1950.

First UK Edition

Hemingway wrote Across the River and into the Trees in 1948-49 after having met the 19-year-old Adriana Ivancich while on a trip to Italy. She became the basis for  Renata, the young woman in the book with whom a dying military officer falls in love. Panned by the critics upon first publication, it is now considered one of the American writer's major works. This attractive book would make a good addition to the library of any Hemingway lover.
