Earlier review: This book will save you the trouble of reading the autobiographies, the biographies, and selected letters of Ernest Hemingway and these five women (his mother and four wives).
But you will enjoy reading the autobiographies and selected letters first, and then coming back to this book to fill in the gaps.
The writing is stilted -- often reads like a PowerPoint presentation -- compared to the writing actually done by its subjects. Specifically, "How It Was" by Mary Welsh Hemingway is a joy to read, and I recommend that before reading "Hemingway Women."
As a reference to fill in the gaps, this is an important book for the Hemingway fan(atic).
