Hemingway’s Ghost is a coming-of-age novella that explores the intergenerational struggles of men trying to connect with one another. When Ernest is born he is initiated in the obscurity of self when his parents disagree about his name—his father named him for his favorite writer while his mother was deep in the pain of childbirth. He soon dives into the complexity of relationships when his parents split up, and narrates his early life with a distracted yet deeply reflective father who is part-poet, part-farmer, and part-philosopher, and contemplates the struggles of coming of age.
