It’s November 1960, and celebrated writer Ernest Hemingway is heading off on his annual shooting trip with friends. But this time, something is wrong. And as Hemingway rants about the Feds tracking his every move, those who know him best begin to despair. Eventually, he takes his own life – but it will be decades before the sinister truth is revealed.
Born in the Chicago suburb of Oak Park, Illinois, in July 1899, Hemingway was immersed in the arts from a young age. In fact, his musician mother Grace encouraged him to learn the cello – a skill that would later be reflected in his acclaimed writing. And in January 1916 his debut article was published in the high-school newspaper.
