Michael Palin's Hemingway Adventure

One hundred years after the birth of Ernest Hemingway, Michael Palin sets out to discover the man behind the legend: a hard-drinking womanizer who liked cats and shooting — but wrote like a dream and left an idelible impression on the twentieth century through his work.

    Mikey B.

    This book takes us to many places where the famous author lived drank, fought and shot various animals… It’s a National Geographic view of Michigan (where Hemingway was born), Paris, Spain (Pamplona), Italy, Africa (Kenya), and Idaho where Hemingway died (actually killed himself).

    Hemingway lived in Toronto, Canada for a time, but alas old T.O. gets no mention (or photos) in this book – it can’t compare to the above mentioned exotic locations!

    Hemingway lived in Toronto, Canada for a time, but alas old T.O. gets no mention (or photos) in this book – it can’t compare to the above mentioned exotic locations!

    It’s a very cursory look at this very spirited writer who was always searching for ways to ingest energy into his life. The book is probably meant for either the diehard Hemingway aficionado, or the opposite, who wants one eye catching coffee table book on the writer.

    Loved very much this thoughtful quote from a Hemingway letter:
    (at the end of Michael Palin’s book)

    We can’t ever go back to old things or try and get the “old kick” out of something or find things the way we remembered them. We have them as we remember them and they are fine and wonderful and we have to go on and have other things because the old things are nowhere except in our minds now.

    biography

    A slightly unstuffy, upper middle class, English twit, roaming the Earth in the footsteps of Ernest Hemingway sounds like the makings of a fun adventure, and if Michael Palin had given more to his journey (or perhaps simply had been better at recording what he did give) it could have been a fun adventure, but most of Michael Palin’s Hemingway Adventure ends up being pretty difficult to enjoy.

    Palin spends much of his time going to the places Hemingway went, recording how they’ve changed over the

    Palin spends much of his time going to the places Hemingway went, recording how they’ve changed over the years and occasionally even flirting with some of the things Hemingway did. He tries the easy things, like fishing and drinking in Papa’s favourite bars, and avoids the slightly distasteful, like shooting ducks, or the marginally dangerous, like picking up some boxing gloves and sparring. It is all very sterile and safe. And he does it all with a mild derision aimed of his subject.

    He claims to have an “obsession” with Hemingway, but then mocks others who share his obsession, especially those who commit to it, just as he tends to mock Papa’s own obsessions. Because of this, Palin never seems to really connect with those he interviews about Hemingway or with the man who inspired his round the world “adventure.” And therein lies another problem: little that Palin does can be considered an “adventure.”

    Going to Africa to hunt in the early years of post-colonialism and crashing one’s plane in the jungle is an adventure. Fighting in the Spanish Civil War is an adventure. Fishing for Marlin in the Gulf Stream on a little boat named the Pilar is an adventure. But redoing all of these things with a film crew, BBC funding, and all of modernity’s important mod cons is not an adventure. It is a job vacationing.

    A real sense of adventure would have sparked Michael Palin’s journey into some kind of life. Instead we get a fairly flat, documentary style recounting of his Hemingway-lite travels, spattered with condescension and periodic judgments concerning Hemingway’s infidelities or reliance on benefactors or failures to live up to his own hype or what-have-you.

    Palin’s book really only has two strengths.

    When he ignores his rather forced Hemingway connection and simply gets to know the people he comes in contact with (which is really what made Hemingway’s own travels so great), Palin loosens up and really seems to soak in the cultures he’s visiting. Whether Palin is chatting with a taxi driver in Cuba or a Matador in Spain, his story takes on a positive energy that makes one long for travel, and that catalyzing of wanderlust is one of the great appeals of travel literature.

    Furthermore, when Palin visits Ketchum, Idaho and wanders the house where Hemingway took his life, the Hemingway Adventure takes on a genuine melancholy. The sadness Palin conveys finally makes the reader believe that maybe, just maybe, Palin really does care about Papa, and that his trip came from a genuine love of America’s literary giant.

    These two strengths don’t do enough to mitigate the weaknesses in the rest of the book, but they do do enough to mitigate one’s total disappointment.

    At the very least, I will give the TV series a try. Perhaps more of the strong Palin will shine through.

    During a signing session at Stanfords bookstore in London Covent Garden I told Michael Palin about my small town Cuneo, in North West Italy, and the fact that he did not mention it nor visit it. Hemingway actually came here in 1954, to buy some famous rum chocolates which are still produced nowadays. He underlined what an interesting story that was and asked me why, instead of being there and telling him the tale, it did not occur to me to bring some … Such a funny encounter..
