Maximino Gómez Alvarez

Expedition Overseas Ambassador


About the authors  Maximino Gómez Alvarez special relation to and admiration for Ernest Hemingway and his life and work in Cuba

„For me, Hemingway has always had a special meaning; I lived in Cojimar for many years, the fishing village that served to Hemingway as inspiration to write his novel The old man and the Sea. Gregorio, the skipper of the Pilar, lived very near to my house and I remember his stories about the trips with Hemingway. I have always admired Hemingway for the strength of his work and his extraordinary talent.“
