Former CIA officer and historian at the CIA Museum Nicholas Reynolds unveils the untold story of novelist Ernest Hemingway’s secret life undercover as a U.S. and Soviet spy in Writer, Sailor, Soldier, Spy. The book chronicles Hemingway’s recruitment by Soviet spies to his sympathies for Castro’s politics. Reynolds’ work examines how the novelist’s undercover work influenced his writing in books such as The Old Man and the Sea, as well as how the covert operations affected Hemingway’s declining mental health.
