Islands in the Stream tells the story of Thomas Hudson as he moves through different stages of his life. The first posthumously published book by Ernest Hemingway, Islands in the Stream was intended to revive the author’s reputation following negative reviews of Across the River and into the Trees. It was discovered by Hemingway’s widow, Mary, among 332 different works left unfinished at his death and, as with Hemingway’s previous works, draws heavily on his personal relationships and experiences during the Second World War.
