The Fall 2016 issue begins with a remarkable front cover, which features an untitled watercolor by Hemingway’s friend, the writer and painter John Dos Passos. As the note in the issue by Donald Pizer argues, the painting presents a macho Hemingway rushing to aid an injured Donald Ogden Stewart at an amateur bullfight-related spectacle during the 1924 Pamplona fiesta. I am very pleased that Don, a scholar renowned for his work on Dos Passos and Hemingway, chose the Review to showcase this incredible find! A larger color version of this painting will be posted on this blog. Check back soon.
This new feature of the Society website will help integrate the Society's publications by directly connecting the Review to the website. The blog will offer teasers for each Review issue as well as materials that supplement and enrich the print version of the journal.
