Perhaps he was too close to Ernest to see the woods from the trees. We get an appreciation of the influence, both good and bad, of his parents on Ernest as a youth in Oak Park, Chicago and vacations in Walloon Lake.

Leicester Clarence Hemingway (April 1, 1915 – September 13, 1982) was an American writer. He was the younger brother of writer Ernest Hemingway and wrote six books, including a first novel entitled The Sound of the Trumpet (1953), based on Leicester's experiences in France and Germany during World War II. In 1961, Leicester published My Brother, Ernest Hemingway, a biography.

Ernest Hemingway In 1937 Ernest Hemingway traveled to Spain to cover the civil war there for the North American Newspaper Alliance.

Following American and British expatriates from the lights of Paris to the bloody bullfights of Pamplona, The Sun Also Rises tells the haunting story of Jake Barnes and Lady Brett Ashley, inextricably in love with each other despite Jake’s devastating war wounds and Brett’s entanglements with a bankrupt English noble and a flamboyant Spanish bullfighter. In 1937 Ernest Hemingway traveled to Spain to cover the civil war there for the North American Newspaper Alliance. Three years later he completed the greatest novel to emerge from "the good fight," For Whom the Bell Tolls.

My Brother, Ernest Hemingway was the only biography Ernest knew about, and he was pleased with it—although he asked his brother to postpone publication while he was still alive. First published in 1962, Leicester's biography provides a revealing and intimate portrait of one of the great writers of our century. Ernest Hemingway was a legend in his own time, whose life was as dramatic as any of the characters in his novels and short stories. He won both the Nobel and the Pulitzer prizes for literature, and the literary style he created has been imitated but never matched.

Leicester was the archetypal kid brother, 16 years younger than the great man, whom he adored and in whose footsteps he followed, becoming a respected writer, sharing his brother's love for high risk and adventure, and, when his health failed, choosing to end his own life as Ernest had done. In this poignant biography, Leicester has given us insight into his world-renowned brother's life and career as no one else could. His reminiscences allow us to better understand what prompted so many of the familiar Hemingway responses, and the experiences from which he derived material for his novels and stories.

Interesting, but, as with many, many Hemingway books, you need other sources for verification. There is veritable " Hemingway Industry " with a legion of writers, all of them with their own agenda and purpose in dissecting the icon and legend of American Literature. An excellent source for any Hemingway history is " Hemingway's Boat." Which is also available on Amazon.com.

Good read on personal issues and experiences and adventures shared between brothers. Considering the large age difference it is interesting how close these two men were. It presents Hemingway as a man who loved his family, and was there to help all his family members in times of need. The book also helps gain understanding why people in Hemingways life looked up to him with deep respect, even when he was not so nice to you. The book brings balance and understanding Hemingway as a writer but also as a man, brother and human being with his own set of human faults.

There is no dirt in this novel. It is clearly written by a man that loved his brother.

All you need to know about this book is that the author dedicated much, much more space and attention to Ernest's fishing and all other adventures than to his children, wives, etc. The author was very careful, intentionally or not, to present Ernest in the best possible way so this book might be good in terms of chronology and insight into the Hemingway family, both obviously precious given the insider status of the author, but other than that it amounts to more or less a__ kissing.

Madis
This book is probably only for the die-hard Hemingway completest, although I believe it was a
best seller when it was first published in 1962. While it does have some information on Ernest
Hemingway that I have not seen elsewhere, it also skims over a lot of important events of which
one would think Leicester would have intimate knowledge.
For example, each of Ernest's divorces are barely mentioned. There are hints of trouble in the
various marriages, although rarely do any details emerge. We are just told that a particular
marriage ended and that Ernest subsequently remarried. Also rather maddening is the fact that
while the events are laid in chronological order, there are rarely any dates tied to many of the
referenced events.
It is also rather obvious that Leicester is avoiding a number of issues similar to the events
surrounding the divorces. He seems to race through the details of Ernest's last months, although
to his credit he does discuss the shock treatments. But he gives us no real insight into what was
troubling Ernest. Is this because he has no intimate knowledge of that period or because he is
trying to protect his brother's legacy in some way? Or was it case of trying to avoid potential
lawsuits, since many of the people mentioned in the book were still alive when it was first
published?
Some of the passages in the book are very confusing, particularly a few where Leicester is
recounting conversations. Either they had some kind of code between themselves that we are left
to decipher or, for all his brilliance as a writer, Ernest was not much of a conversationalist (which
kind of flies in the face of all the entertaining and partying he did throughout his life).
It is also unclear, perhaps deliberately so since the book is about Ernest, as to what successes
Leicester had in trying to follow in his famous brother's footsteps. There are references to Ernest
reviewing Leicester's attempts at writing, but nothing to indicate if Leicester ever published
anything beyond this book. This may be because the book is focused on Ernest, rather than
Leicester, but it would be nice to know what successes Leicester may or may not have had.
None of the above should dissuade the Hemingway fan from reading the book. I did enjoy
reading the book, but it is almost maddening in the number of details that are left out. Leicester
just kind of leaves you asking for more.

If you are interested in Ernest Hemingway and his life, this book will interest you. It is written by his brother, also a journalist. Well written. Somewhat of a new picture of who Ernest Hemingway was.

This was the first full length biography of Ernest Hemingway. His brother, Les, was aware of Ernest's mental and physical problems and that he didn't want any biographies written about him during his lifetime. When Ernest shot and killed himself in the summer of 1961, Les had this book ready to go to the publisher. Leicester was a fine writer and as a man was a life bringer who always raised the spirits of his companions. This quality can be felt in his book. It is quite well written and offers a glimpse into the life of an enormously complicated man who was also a dedicated artist. And Les's biography remains a very fine introduction to his brother's life, one of our greatest American writers.

MisterMax
sad to admit, hard to say--but not well written at all. truth is ernest was the only writer in the family. what can you do? it still may be worth reading to some in order to get his younger brother's perspective on things, etc.

Quite interesting book if you are a real fan of Hemingways and just have to read all biographies. If not: stay away and read for example books on Ernest Hemingways life by Michael Reynolds or good old Carlos Baker instead.
