    One thought on “Walk on Water: A Memoir”

    1. This was one of those books that I read slowly towards the end because I didn t want it to be over and reread numerous passages just because they were written so well I m surprised by how much I enjoyed a book that focused so much on a topic fishing that I don t care that much about.

    2. Weighty and honest, brutal and funny, and lovely writing And a last line that makes emotion rise up in the back of your throat.

    3. Lorain Hemingway writes about her life, growing up in the South and being the grand daughter of Ernest Hemingway Her writing is eloquent and beautiful She describes the people in her life with true character and emotion The book is about fishing as well, which even if you don t fish you will understand the passion around the sport and the opportunities for friendship involved while fishing Loved this book and plan to read her other works.

    4. Memoir by daughter of Earnest H Grew up near the southern coast of the US and fished for recreation Fishing became a personal metaphor for life She became and addicted to alcohol but finally kicked it She does a good job of making fishing sound interesting.

    5. Beautiful book, tragic, harrowing and ultimately triumphant Loved the peek at Les Hemingway, someone I d always been intrigued with.
