RARA-AVIS: Willeford News

From: kip.stratton@ni.com
Date: 14 Jun 2000

Charles Willeford's old Florida drinking buddy was Leicester Hemingway, Ernest's brother. When he died, Leicester left behind tapes in which he describes his exploits, which may or may not be true. But his daughter, Hilary, has put together a book called HUNTING WITH HEMINGWAY, based on transcripts of Leicester's tapes. Willeford was present when Leicester made the tapes and offered contributions along the way, which Hilary Hemingway reportedly has included in the book. His comments range from "stuffy academics to the famous rat fights of Mogadishu." I don't know how much Willeford is in the book, but apparently there's some. HUNTING WITH HEMINGWAY is supposed to be published by Riverhead Books on July 13.
