Across the River and Into the Trees. By Ernest Hemingway. First Edition, First Printing. Scribners. New York, 1950.

$70.00

In 1948, Hemingway and his fourth wife, Mary, traveled to Europe, where Hemingway met Adriana Ivancich and began a love affair. This affair led to a brief separation from Mary Hemingway and months alone in Cuba. It also inspired Hemingway’s sixth published novel, Across the River and Into the Trees. The novel was met with poor reviews, sending Hemingway on a tirade in the public sphere. Years later, however, the critical response has softened, and Across the River and into the Trees is now considered a notable work among Hemingway’s many great novels. It also contains his archetypal plot structure: it follows a masculine protagonist who falls in love with a young woman. For any Hemingway completist, it is an essential volume.
