Hemingway’s Chair by Michael Palin

Hemingway's Chair

Palin (from Monty Python) writes an amusing story about a small post office in rural England. The hero of the story Martin Sproale gets caught up with government privatization. Martin is also obsessed with Ernest Hemingway, and when he runs into Ruth Kohler, a Hemingway scholar, his private world and his work collide. Hemingway’s Chair was an enjoyable read but if you’re looking for a theme, I’m not sure there was one. If you’re looking for a really funny book this isn’t it. This story has a quiet humor, not the kind Palin usually noted for.
