In the autumn of 1948 Hemingway and his fourth wife travelled for the first time to Venice, which Hemingway called ‘a goddam wonderful city’. He was a year shy of his fiftieth birthday and hadn’t published a novel in nearly a decade. At a duck shoot in the lagoon he met and fell in love with Adriana Ivancich, a striking Venetian girl just out of finishing school. Di Robilant – whose great uncle moved in Hemingway’s revolving circle of bon vivants, aristocrats and artists – recreates with sparkling clarity this surprising, years-long relationship.
