(From the publisher):
David Bourne, a young American writer, finds his Mediteranean honeymoon interrupted by a flood of good notices about his second novel. Catherine, his wife, encourages him in his work...or does she?
Does Catherine resent the time that he spends at his desk? Is he crazy, or has she put a younger, more exotic woman in his path? All David knows is that this is a dangerous game.
In telling who survives this triangle, Hemingway reveals a rare tenderness and vulnerability. Catherine steps off the pages rounded and whole, convincing and deeply appealing. And in David, we see Hemingway himself, the quality of vision required to sustain his own writing, and its price.
A sensational bestseller when it appeared in 1986, The Garden of Eden is the last uncompleted novel of Ernest Hemingway, which he worked on intermittently from 1946 until his death in 1961.
