True at First Lightopens on the day Ernest Hemingway's close friend Pop, a celebrated hunter, leaves him in charge of the safari camp and news arrives of a potential attack from a hostile tribe. Drama continues to build as his wife, Mary, pursues the great, black-maned lion that has become her obsession. Equally adept at evoking the singular textures of the landscape, the thrill of the hunt and the complexities of married life, Hemingway waves a tale that is rich in laughter, beauty, and profound insight. True at First Lightis the breathtaking final work from one of this nation's most beloved and important writers.

Earl Theisen, 1953

Ernest Hemingway did more to change the style of English prose than any other writer of his time. Publication of The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms immediately established Hemingway as one of the greatest literary lights of the twentieth century. His classic novel The Old Man and the Sea won the Pulitzer Prize in 1953. Hemingway was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954. His life and accomplishments are explored in-depth in the PBS documentary film from Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, Hemingway. Known for his larger-than-life personality and his passions for bullfighting, fishing, and big-game hunting, he died in Ketchum, Idaho on July 2, 1961.
