Hemingway on the China Front: His WWII Spy Mission with Martha Gellhorn.
by [Hemingway's War Reportage] Moreira, Peter.
A Fine tight, unread copy in a Fine bright dust jacket. In 1941, the U.S. Treasury Department hired Ernest Hemingway as a spy in China . Hemingway and his new wife Martha Gellhorn had no idea of what they would discover when they set out for Hong Kong, China, and Burma while honeymooning in the exotic Far East. "Hemingway on the China Front" is the first book to track Hemingway’s progress as a spy in Asia during the war, defining his duties as he saw fit. Peter Moreira follows Hemingway and Gellhorn as they seek stories to file for two different magazines—and try to adapt to each other’s strong egos—in dangerous, uncomfortable, exotic places in the throes of war. This is the first and only in-depth study of Hemingway's spy activities in China during Sino-Japanese war in the early months preceding America's war with Japan.
