HEMINGWAY’S GIRL Contest
In Robuck’s new novel, HEMINGWAY’S GIRL (New American Library; September 2012; $16; ISBN: 978-0-451-23788-0; Trade Paperback Original), she tells the story of protagonist Mariella Bennet in Depression-era Key West. A tough yet beautiful half-Cuban, half-American young woman, Mariella works hard to support her mother and two sisters after the sudden death of her father. One evening, she meets two men who will shape her life forever—the infamous writer Ernest Hemingway, and Gavin Murray, one of the WWI veterans stationed nearby while building the Overseas Highway. Soon Mariella is surrounded by extravagance and the jealousies of an often unstable Hemingway and her priorities are tested as she struggles to care for her family, overcome temptation, try to forge a life of her own and ultimately survive one of the largest disasters in history—the 1935 Labor Day Hurricane.
