Hemingways Chair by tucsonmike on 26 October 2007 7:28pm
Just finished reading that and enjoyed it. For those who do not know, it is Mr. Palin's novel.

hello mike,i was given the book about 6 months ago by my mother to read,she had picked it up at a second hand book stall and i was very pleasantly surprised with it.it was an enjoyable read,where the images portrayed in the book sprang readliy to life in my mind as i turned page after page.the storyline was uncomplicated and rolled along at a good pace and was quite a relaxing novel.an all too familiar scenario of crushing business egotism off set by the insight into the life of ernest hemingway portrayed by the passion of the principle character in all things "hemingway".good fun.

Hemingway's Chair was the first book I had signed by Michael (at Victoria Station in 1995!). I really enjoyed the book.

It's funny, because I cannot fathom Mr. P's love of Hemingway. The only Hemingway story I ever liked was The Old Man and the Sea.
Hemingway's Chair does really spell out the modern world (especially huge corporations) acting as a steamroller.

I love this book and have read it several times. I have thought the same thing as you Mike, Hemingway is an odd person to admire!
