The Letters of Ernest Hemingway, Volume 4, spanning April 1929 through 1931, begins as the writer makes final revisions to the novel that will catapult him to international fame. A Farewell to Arms, published in September 1929 was an immediate critical and commercial success. Breaking new artistic ground in 1930, Hemingway embarks upon his first and greatest nonfiction work, the monumental treatise on bullfighting Death in the Afternoon. With a growing understanding of the literary marketplace, Hemingway increasingly corresponds with publishers, translators, collectors, admirers, autograph seekers, theater agents, movie moguls, and his first bibliographer.

The letters record developments in Hemingway’s personal life, including the birth of his third son and his increasing passion for deep sea fishing and big game hunting. They trace growing strains in his friendship with F. Scott Fitzgerald and the development of his relationships with editor Maxwell Perkins and such writers as Archibald MacLeish and John Dos Passos. The volume ends as Hemingway’s family take up residence in their new home in Key West. During this period of political and economic upheaval in Europe and America, Hemingway remains hard at work despite suffering injuries to his writing arm that require a long and painful rehabilitation. Throughout, he writes (and, when unable to write, dictates) an avalanche of letters that record in witty, humorous, colorful, and sometimes eloquent prose the eventful life and achievements of an enormous personality.
