About this item

Key West, 1936. Headstrong, accomplished journalist Martha Gellhorn is confident with words but less so with men when she meets disheveled literary titan Ernest Hemingway in a dive bar. Their friendship -- forged over writing, talk, and family dinners -- flourishes into something undeniable in Madrid while they're covering the Spanish Civil War.
