I had to retitle the forthcoming Hemingway book, because my publisher was afraid we might be sued — publishers are always afraid of being sued, and for good reason, this society being what it is. The potential grounds were that people might read the title Hemingway on Hemingway as being a collection of quotations — this despite the fact that the subtitle clearly said Afterlife Conversations, etc.
So, now it is going to be called Afterlife Conversations with Hemingway: A Dialogue on His Life, His Work and The Myth. I don’t think the title is quite as nice as what we had come up with originally, but anything for a quiet life! The book is scheduled to be printed next month, and of course i am anxious to see it.
