MRS HEMINGWAY by Naomi Wood
It's a novelisation of Ernest Hemingway's four marriages. His first is to a nice young woman he meets in Chicago; the second to a much wealthier woman who can fund his career; the third to a hotshot journalist, who proves too successful for his taste; and the fourth to an unfortunate lady who gets the booby prize: a fat, alcoholic old man whose writing days are behind him.
Sounds like a good basis for a book, right? And yet somehow it was dull and I've already forgotten that I read it.
