520 1 |a "When the U.S Treasury Department hired Ernest Hemingway as a spy in China before the United States entered the war, it awakened a new obsession in America's most adventuresome author. The great literary man of action reveled in being a government operative, while his journalist wife championed the anti-Japanese resistance of Chiang Kai-Shek. Hemingway on the China Front is the first book to track Hemingway's progress as a spy in Asia during the war, defining his duties as he saw fit. Author Peter Moreira follows Hemingway and Martha Gellhorn as they seek stories to file - and try to adapt to each other's strong egos - in dangerous, uncomfortable, exotic places in the throes of war. Well versed in Asian history and culture, Moreira also provides context of time and place."--Jacket
