Double-sided. In the fall of 1948, Ernest Hemingway traveled for the first time to Venice where he fell in love with Adriana Ivancich, his last muse. A surprising, years-long relationship, during which she inspired a man 30 years her senior, who hadn??™t published a novel in nearly a decade, to complete The Old Man and the Sea and was the model for Renata in Across the River and into the Trees. Can a muse reverse roles and become a writer, with an intimate look at her soul through the magic of her own words? Every woman knows the answer.
