When considering the body of work and legacy of Ernest Hemingway, one might ask, what has not been written? Author Wylie McLallen draws on family connections and insights for his two-volume biography, available on the Oxford Southern imprint of Sunbury Press Books.

"Unbridled Dreamer: Hemingway and the Rise of Modern Literature" looks at Hemingway's early life, his relationship with his family (partially through the eyes of McLallen's grandparents), and the influence Gertrude Stein and Ezra Pound would have on Hemingway. In Volume Two, "A Man of Modern Letters," McLallen continues with Hemingway's role in the Modern Movement of literature. 

Growing up in Memphis, Wylie McLallen degreed in History and English at the University of Tennesse, and studied under renowned professor, Dr. Robert Drake. In addition to his works on Hemingway, McLallen is the author of "Tigers By the River," about the early years of professional football and one of the first professional super-teams. He lives with his wife, Nickey Bayne in Vancouver, British Columbia.
