New Releases by Ernest Hemingway

Beneath Hemingway’s estate in Havana, Cuba, 2,000 documents were left forgotten and unpublished in his damp basement.

The estate, neglected because of its tricky location, was becoming increasingly decrepit until 2004, when Jenny Phillips, the granddaughter of Hemingway’s editor, founded the Finca Vigia Foundation.

The found items are mostly personal letters, written for his wife, his editor, his friends, and himself.

On Monday, 2,000 digital copies of these papers and materials were transferred to the Ernest Hemingway Collection at the John F. Kennedy Library in Boston.
