What to expect

In this Hemingway fiction in our time, author Scott Fivelson takes listeners on a literary journey from Paris to Pamplona as a marathoner on his last legs reflects on the sport as it might have been written about if Hemingway had been a runner. A Farewell to Legs is both a satire of a classic and a classic satire.

“The way Mariel Hemingway narrated this story was wonderful. Her voice and tone added so much inflection to the story, making it easy to close your eyes and really get lost in it…This audiobook moves from one subject to the next and then back again with ease. It has a nice blend of humor, thought-provoking statements, and some great quotes…Great audiobook, great ending.”
