Hemingway Adventure


Michael Palin - Hemingway AdventureBack at base camp, enormous thanks to Martin Cooper for stitching the television series together, to Eddie Mirzoeff for keeping a paternal eye, to my assistants Anne Chamberlain and Anouchka Harrison for making sense of my ravings, to Emily Lodge for paying our bills and especially to Anne James at Prominent Television for her help and inspiration.

Any list of those who have made things easier for us must be headed by Michael Katakis, Literary Rights Manager for the Hemingway Family, who has been a generous source of encouragement from the very beginning. His combination of expert knowledge of the subject and wonderful cooking skills is unequalled. I should also like to thank Kris Hardin, Natalia Henderson, David Boardman, Steve Plotkin and James Hill at the Kennedy Library, Mike Diehl, Alf Tönnesson, Hans Tovoté, Dudley Clarke, Candace Eaton, Sherrie Levy and Suzanna Zsohar.

Last but not least my thanks to Michael Dover, my editor, for steering the book safely home, and to Basil Pao. He has travelled with me so often now that he won’t believe any compliments, but without his fine photographs there would be no book and without his design the book wouldn’t look a quarter as good as it does.
