This chautauqua program by Betty Jean Steinshouer examines the author of machismo, from a woman’s point of view. Gertrude Stein, Act One, shares memories of a young and “impossibly handsome” reporter who came to her door in Paris – one of the “Lost Generation” of Americans created by World War 1. Willa Cather, Act Two, places Hemingway in company with other writers such as F. Scoot Fitzgerald, Ford Maddox Ford, and Gertrude Stein. And finally, in Act Three, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings talks about “Hem,” her friend and colleague at Scribner’s. She knows, better than any, his deep affection for Florida and his fatal flaws.
