Ranging from 1917 to 1961, this generous selection of nearly 600 letters is, in effect, both a self-portrait and an autobiography. The definitive work on Hemingway's correspondence with family and a huge range of friends. They reveal as much about his personality as do his books and the numerous biographies written since his death. Fine.    Price: $40.00

"If I am in a museum, I am beyond excuses; the past does not have to excuse itself. If I am in a courtroom, it is the business of someone else to defend me. So I will try hard to avoid self-excuse, as distinct from critical comment, in my notes on this material.
