Abstract:

Beginning in the 1930s, Islands in the Stream follows the fortunes of Thomas Hudson from his experiences as a painter on the Gulf Stream island of Bimini, where his loneliness is broken by the vacation visit of his three young sons, to his anti-submarine activities off the coast of Cuba during World War II. The greater part of the story takes place in a Havana bar, where a wildly diverse cast of characters - including an aging prostitute who stands out as one of Hemingway¿s most vivid creations - engages in incomparably rich dialogue. Hemingway is at his mature best in this beguiling tale.
