“Jack Hemingway had as direct a connection with the natural world as any writer who ever lived— including his father. Fishing and hunting and the good life itself live on his pages.”

Terry McDonell managing editor of Sports Illustrated

“In A Life Worth Living, he is with us still, and those of us who knew him will go on hearing that thousand-yard laugh as he marched to his rivers.”

Tom McGuane

A LIFE WORTH LIVING The Adventures of a Passionate Sportsman JACK HEMINGWAY; EDITED AND WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY GEOFFREY NORMAN

A memoir of a sportsman’s life from the son of one of the twentieth century’s greatest writers.

Jack Hemingway, son of literary legend Ernest Hemingway and one of America’s best-known outdoors- men, has written an engrossing, warm, and candid memoir of his life as an inveterate sportsman. Balancing self-effacing humor with a delicacy of prose both graceful and knowing, along with an intro- duction by Geoffrey Norman and a foreword contributed by Angela Hemingway, A Life Worth Living is a touching, passionate memoir of a lifetime spent practicing the sports he loved so much.

Jack Hemingway, the eldest son of Ernest Hemingway, was an avid fly fisherman and sportsman for more than sixty years. This posthumous publication is his second book.

Geoffrey Norman is the author of Two for the Summit: My Daughte , the Mountains, and Me. He has written for Outside, Esquire, Men’s Journal, National Geographic, and Sports Illustrated. He lives in Dorset, Vermont.
