But now it is there absolutely true, beautiful and believable. Perhaps with this book Hemingway learned how mutable the truth really is. Or he might be referring to the editing process: What a writer thinks is true at first light can evolve in his eyes and become a lie by noon. The true book, though, is less in its events than in the unmonitored voice of its author. Hemingway, talking, offers a compendium of his familiar old symbols, themes, moods, feelings, details. But the voice is also like hearing the author from somewhere beyond the grave, speaking from within his own : Ernest Hemingway, Patrick Hemingway.

Perhaps the most controversial aspect of True at First Light is Hemingway's purported "marriage" to Debba. Do you believe that this relationship is truthfully rendered, or one of the "fictionalized" elements of this memoir.

Could Debba be an amalgamation of a few different women. A metaphor for Hemingway's love of Africa itself.
