Description

Ernest Hemingway was embraced by many Cubans as Papa, the everyday man who lived in the iconic seaside estate, Finca Vigia.  He wrote some of his most masterful novels in Havana, Cuba - and lived quite the life there, too. 


But Cuba is rarely highlighted or even remembered in Hemingway's biography. Fidel Castro saw the importance of Hemingway as a writer and political tool.  




In this installment, Norberto Fuentes, the legendary Cuban journalist and author in exile, discusses Hemingway’s life and legacy in Cuba. 




This is a Somethin' Else production in association with Vespucci.
