Description:

First Edition, so stated. First Printing indicated. Near Fine in Very Good DJ: Book shows the faintest shelf soiling along the bottom edge of the cloth covered boards; just a hint of crimping at the heel of the backstrip; binding square and secure; text clean. DJ shows moderate wear to the extremities; mild rubbing; very faint, but pervasive soiling to the white background field of the rear panel; the price has been clipped; mylar-protected. A handsome copy: Structurally sound and tightly bound. Remains clean, sturdy, and quite presentable. The DJ is flawed, but intact, showing a little wear. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 240pp. Hardback with DJ. Coming of Age autobiography of Hotchner as a 12 year old boy in St. Louis during the depression. Great, sad stories told perfectly. Aaron Edward "A.E." Hotchner (born June 28, 1920) is an American editor, novelist, playwright and biographer. Hotchner's articles appeared in the best magazines and journals of the time. He has also been an editor, biographer, novelist and playwright. In 1948, Hotchner met Ernest Hemingway and the two were close friends until Hemingway's death in 1961. Hotchner is best known for Papa Hemingway, his 1966 biography of Hemingway, whose work he had adapted for plays and television. His play Sweet Prince was produced Off-Broadway in 1982 at the Theater Off-Park, starring Keir Dullea and Ian Abercrombie. King of the Hill is Hotchner's evocative memoir of his childhood in St. Louis during the Great Depression. It was made into a film in 1993, screen-written and directed by Steven Soderbergh. Hotchner founded Newman's Own, Inc., with his friend and neighbor, actor Paul Newman, in 1982. All profits from this successful line of food products and other ventures are turned over to charities, including the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp that they established in 1988 for children with life-threatening illnesses. Hotchner lives in Westport, Connecticut. Hotchner has been honored with a star on the St. Louis Walk of Fame. Bookseller Inventory #
