So much trash. Inane dialog, endless repetition. Unbelievable characters. Without Hemingway's name attached never would have been published, much less read. Reprobate pedophile barely into his fifties presented as ancient, worn out, about to keel over. Fifty! Come on. Nineteen year old nymphet, apparently with her period thoughout. Booze intake continually dwelt on would put any real mortal under the table.
Now that we have Nabokov's tale (at least he makes it funny) let's consign this pathetic emarrassment of Hemingway's to the oblivion it deserves.
