I had the pleasure of speaking to the head of New Street Communications, Ed Renehen, yesterday. His publishing company based in R.I. has recently published H.R. Stoneback’s book, Hemingway’s Paris: Our Paris? Ed had some great Hemingway stories which I truly enjoyed.
I also saw in Denis Brian’s, The True Gen, that there was a photo of Ernest Hemingway with Pier Vincenzo Bellia and his daughter, Bianca Bellia who claimed (60 years later) that Hemingway proposed to her when he was at Stresa on Lake Maggiore (1918). I’m trying to find out if that comment is true?…if anyone has any information please let me know.
