Part Six: The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber
Among the most famous of Hemingway’s short stories, "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber" is also a gateway into the relationship between Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald. This conversation will focus on the ways in which Hemingway used his “friend” as a muse, how he viewed his contemporary, and the ways in which their friendship and rivalry manifested in some of the most enduring works of 20th century American literature.
