Hemingways Gemeinheiten kurz vor dem Selbstmord

Vor 50 Jahren nahm sich Ernest Hemingway das Leben. Sein letztes Buch "Ein Fest fürs Leben" war eine heimliche Bitte um Vergebung, zeigt die Urfassung.

Was ist das Glück? Zu Mittag gibt es „‚Radieschen und gute foie de veau mit Kartoffelbrei und Endiviensalat. Apfelkuchen.‘ – ‚Und wir haben alle Bücher der Welt zum Lesen, und wenn wir auf Reisen gehen, können wir sie mitnehmen.‘“ Ende 1921 kommen Ernest Hemingway und seine Frau Hadley in Paris an.
