Book Club Questions for Mrs Hemingway by Naomi Wood

Book Club Questions for Mrs Hemingway by Naomi Wood

Discuss the relationships that develop between Hemmingway’s wives.

Despite his behaviour towards his wives, Hemmingway is not portrayed as a ‘bad’ person. How does Naomi Wood maintain this balance?

Hadley, Fife, Martha and Mary are all very different women. What do you think they are all looking for in their relationship with Hemmingway, and him with them?

Wood creates a very different tone of voice for each wife and each marriage. How does she achieve this?
