Cancelled - JAMES McGRATH MORRIS

 

**This event has been cancelled**

After meeting for the first time on the front lines of World War I, two aspiring writers--Hemingway and Dos Passos-- forged an intense twenty-year friendship and wrote some of America's greatest novels, giving voice to a "lost generation" shaken by war. James McGrath Morris’ The Ambulance Drivers: Hemingway, Dos Passos, and a Friendship Made and Lost in War (DaCapo) sheds light on a complicated, often fraught relationship between two iconic writers.

"Here is a story of war, love, and politics writ large, a story of two literary lions trapped in a double-helix relationship more powerful than either will admit. In this intricately braided dual biography, Morris shows us how the two novelists needed each other, even as they differed--often drastically so--in the way they negotiated the gravitational forces of their times."-- Hampton Sides.
