Hemingway Society member Mark Ott is seeking innovative and challenging
addressing the topic of "Ernest Hemingway and the Geography of Memory" for a
book he is interested in editing.

Michigan, Italy, Spain, Paris, Africa, Key West and Bimini are some of the
distinctive places in the Hemingway oeuvre; in short fiction, novels,
journalism and correspondence, Hemingway revisited these sites, re-imagining
and transforming them into texts such as _In Our Time_, _A Farewell to
Arms_, _The Sun Also Rises_, _Green Hills of Africa_, _To Have and Have
Not_, _A Moveable Feast_ and _Islands in the Stream_. For this volume, I am
seeking essays that explore how Hemingway used the lens of memory to reshape
and transform seascape, landscape, events and people. The past was always
Hemingway's imaginative fuel; this proposed volume welcomes a variety of
approaches and premises shedding new light on Hemingway's complex,
idealized, and romanticized uses of his memory.
