Travels with Hemingway's Keeper

Listen to Travels with Hemingway's Keeper

In a discussion full of anecdotes and asides, Michael Katakis talks to Laura Jean McKay about the hard-living, muscular-writing master wordsmith that was Hemingway, his own love of travel, and how his two great loves influence his own creative work –as well as a detour into his thoughts on American politics and society.

Katakis is a man of many talents: he’s a travel writer, photographer, and manager of Ernest Hemingway’s literary estate. With Hemingway’s son, Patrick, he works to protect the integrity of the great man’s legacy – a job that takes him around the globe.
