NAOMI WOOD

WEDNESDAY, MAY 28; 7 PM

NAOMI WOOD will introduce her debut novel, Mrs. Hemingway, which is narrated by Ernest Hemingway’s four wives: Hadley, Pauline, Martha, and Mary. Told in four parts, and based on love letters, diaries and telegrams, it explores the explosive love triangles that wrecked each of his marriages and is peopled with members of the fabled “Lost Generation” Hemingway’s friends, including Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, and F. Scott Fitzgerald. As each wife struggles with his mistress for Ernest’s heart, each marriage slips from tenderness to treachery. Every Mrs. Hemingway thought it would last forever and every one was wrong.

Naomi Wood is traveling from London for a five-city U.S. tour to introduce this Penguin original paperback novel.
