Political Journalist Frank Phillips chronicles the unique project he was involved in to help the Cuban government preserve Ernest Hemingway’s home and personal papers from further deterioration. It required bridging a political gulf full of mistrust and suspicion. In the end, the power of Hemingway’s legacy overcame a hostile State Department and culminated in a long lunch with Fidel Castro.

Frank Phillips is a veteran Massachusetts political journalist and former State House bureau chief for the Boston Globe.
