There's no question about Hemingway having read Hammett. In "Death in the Afternoon," he writes: "My eyes were too bad to read, and my wife was reading Dashiell Hammett's bloodiest to date, The Dain Curse, out loud . .
.." As Bill Nolan, IMO the best of the Hammett biographers points out in his
"Hammett: A Life On The Edge," a list of the books included in Hemingway's library includes The Glass Key, The Thin Man and Blood Money.
