Seán Hemingway Marks New 'Green Hills' Edition

The newest installment in a series of Hemingway Library releases, Green Hills Of Africa is out now from Scribner, and it’s the perfect excuse to revisit one Hemingway’s perhaps less famous works.

Hemingway’s time in Africa influenced both his own writings, including The Snows of Kilimanjaro, and America’s understanding of the continent.

This edition of the novel, a first-person account of Hemingway’s 1933 Serengeti safari, also includes photographs taken during hunts, early drafts, lost passages and the safari journal of Hemingway’s then-wife Pauline.

Pauline happens to be the grandmother of Seán Hemingway, who put this project together and contributed a new introduction. Ernest Hemingway’s grandson is a curator in the Department of Greek and Roman Art at the Met.
