"In this masterful treatise, meticulously researched and superbly written, David Crowe brings the artistic and intellectual similarities (and differences) of these two men into sharp focus. The prose flows beautifully, like a river in a George Seurat painting. This book is a gem."
—Peter W. Marty, Publisher and Editor, The Christian Century
"I thought I knew Hemingway and Uncle Ho. Turns out I didn't know half the story. This book is a delight, Crowe's enthusiasm for his subject leaping from every page."
—Paul Hanstedt, PhD, Director of the Center for Academic Resources and Pedagogical Excellence, Washington and Lee University
"David Crowe--part literary biographer, part cultural critic, wholly engaged with the deepest questions of human meaning and hope--draws readers in with this compelling account of Hemingway and Ho Chi Minh. This book is a lesson in the art of becoming fully human."
—Jason A. Mahn, author of Becoming a Christian in Christendom
"In this well-researched and engaging book, literary scholar David Crowe paints a picture of the intellectual communities in Paris in the years immediately following the Great War and finds surprising similarities between the early thinking of these two men, whom most readers may not have previously considered together."
—Marion Larson, Professor of English, Bethel University
"This book is a rare thing: it is a tremendous piece of skillful story-telling, erudite without being pedantic, written by someone who clearly loves to read, for people who love to read."
—Jason Peters, Professor of English, Augustana College
