Islands In The Stream
Ernest Hemingway

London: Collins, 1970
First Edition. Condition: Very Good.

Islands In The Stream was published posthumously at a time when there was a lot of anticipation for a full length novel left unpublished among Hemingway’s writings at the time of his death. Relatively rare among his featured novels, although it is never wholly absent, the book follows an artist living much like the writer himself. Beginning in the 1930s, Islands in the Stream follows the fortunes of Thomas Hudson from his experiences as a painter on the Gulf Stream island of Bimini, where his loneliness is broken by the vacation visit of his three young sons, to his antisubmarine activities off the coast of Cuba during World War II. The greater part of the story takes place in a Havana bar, where a wildly diverse cast of characters — including an aging prostitute who stands out as one of Hemingway's most vivid creations — engages in incomparably rich dialogue.
