Speaker information

Dr Naomi Wood, Goldsmiths, University of London

Today, Ernest Hemingway is remembered as one of the most gifted writers of the twentieth century. But he was also married to four extraordinary women: Hadley, Pauline, Martha and Mary. Told in four parts, Naomi Wood’s new novel Mrs. Hemingway tells the story of what it was to love – and be loved by – one of the most famous writers in the world. Set against the backdrop of Roaring Twenties Paris and into Cold War America, Mrs. Hemingway recovers each woman from Hemingway’ shadow, and gives a touching and balanced account of life with ‘Ernesto’.

Naomi Wood will read from her novel, and explore via videos, photographs, letters and telegrams what we know of these women and the eras they lived in. The presentation will be followed by a drinks reception.
