"This is a magisterial retelling of who did what with and to whom--Ezra Pound, the Fitzgeralds, the Murphys, Getrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas, Sylvia Beach and James Joyce, Robert McAlmon, Bryher, H.D., and all the other major and minor players whose personal histories gave the era the aura of golden perfection."-- The New York Times Book Review

In this brilliant, elegantly written biography, award-winning author James R. Mellow offers a thorough reassessment of a man who was both a literary giant and an icon for his age. The final volume in Mellow's "Lost Generation" trilogy, Hemingway: A Life Without Consequences is also a homage to Paris in the 1920s and a tribute to the writers and artists who set the indelible standards for the modern age.
"Without it, neither scholar nor layman can claim to have a full understanding of the forces that shaped and ultimately destroyed the talent of a man who is arguably the most influential writer of the twentieth century."-- Los Angeles Times
