9780099586630: Islands in the Stream

Divided into three parts, Islands in the Stream is Hemingway's last work, originally published posthumously in 1970, nine years after his death.

Thomas Hudson is an artist and adventurer. In the 1930s, Hudson is living in the Bimini Islands in the Gulf Stream. Separated from his sons for most of the year by their controlling mother, Hudson lives a life carved out by the rolling waves of the sea and the currents of the tide. When his sons come to visit the island, Hudson is forced to come to terms with his unfamiliar role as a father.

This compelling novel follows Hudson's evolution from contemplative artist to antisubmarine adventurer during WWII. Hudson must face the harsh realities of life and death, alongside a cast of colourful and vivid characters, in war-time Cuba and at sea.

Drawing on Hemingway's own experiences, Islands in the Stream combines one of his most complex and troubled characters with his most exquisite descriptions of nature, in a novel rich in both reflection and action.

Product Description:

Title: Islands in the Stream <>Binding: Paperback <>Author: Ernest Hemingway <>Publisher: ARROW

Review:

"Hemingway's most deeply autobiographical piece of work" (Irish Times)

"Hemingway’s style is a superb vehicle for revealing tenderness of feeling beneath descriptions of brutality" (Guardian)

"Many of the episodes contain the most exciting and effective writing Hemingway has ever done" (Saturday Review)

"This book contains some of the best of Hemingway's descriptions of nature: the waves breaking white and green on the reef off the coast of Cuba; the beauty of the morning on the deep water; the hermit crabs and land crabs and ghost crabs; a big barracuda stalking mullet; a heron flying with his white wings over the green water; the ibis and flamingoes and spoonbills, the last of these beautiful with the sharp rose of their color; the mosquitoes in clouds from the marshes; the water that curled and blew under the lash of the wind; the sculpture that the wind and sand had made of a piece of driftwood, gray and sanded and embedded in white, floury sand" (Edmund Wilson Saturday Review)

"Thomas Hudson, the painter in the book Islands in the Streamis Hemingway himself, attempting to come to terms with everything he loves - the clarity of a brushstroke, his three children, his ex-wives, his lovers, his whores, his friends, his cats, his rifle, his Booth's gin" (Newsweek)
