Two days in Ketchum, Idaho with Jack and Angela Hemingway was one of those “pinch me, I must be dreaming” adventures. We were there to interview Jack for the upcoming release of the Hemingway line of furniture being introduced by Thomasville. What we found was one of the most unique travel experiences of a lifetime.
“There’s a Picasso in there somewhere” said Angela Hemingway, wife of Jack …eldest son of author Ernest Hemingway. “I have to run some errands and will be back in about an hour…just make yourself at home.” (The Picasso was a fake, however)
We went inside the solid concrete structure. The furnishings were the latest of the 50’s and early 60’s. The overall decor of the home where Ernest Hemingway lived his final two years seemed to suspend time.
“This house will survive a nuclear attack,” remarked Jack. “It was built to last..as will the writings of my father.”
