On this episode, author Robert Wheeler discusses his new book, ‘Hemingway’s Havana: A Reflection of the Writer’s Life in Cuba,’ that portrays the intimate connection Hemingway had with the land, the sea, the people, the culture, and the politic of Cuba. From La Closerie des Lilas café in Paris to Sloppy Joe’s bar in Key West to El Floridita in Havana, Robert Wheeler has followed Hemingway’s path across three continents, seeking to capture through photography and the written word the essence of one of the greatest writers in the English language. The book includes a foreword by América Fuentes who is the granddaughter of the late Gregorio Fuentes, the captain of Hemingway’s boat Pilar and his loyal and close friend.
