(From the publisher):
First published in 1970, nine years after Hemingway's death, this is the story of an artist and adventurer -- a man much like Hemingway 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 through his antisubmarine activities off the coast of Cuba during World War II.
A 34,000 excerpt from the "Bimini" section was first published in Esquire, October 1970;
A long excerpt from the "Cuba" section was published separately in Cosmopolitan, March 1971.
