Two summers ago in the Wall Street Journal, I tackled the mystery of Ernest Hemingway’s short story, “Big Two-Hearted River.” It’s a fishing story set in northern Michigan, which I visit each summer. My own fishing exploits aren’t nearly as dramatic or worthy of literature–but I was glad to have the chance to write about one of America’s great writers in one of my favorite places.

This year, I’m packing a new book for my trip Up North: Picturing Hemingway’s Michigan, by Michael R. Federspiel. It’s a wonderful coffee-table book about northern Michigan as Hemingway knew it about a century ago.
