Writer Darla Worden & Her Ernest Hemingway Obsession

Photo by Povy Kendal Atchison

As a teenager, I spied a photograph of Ernest Hemingway hanging above the jukebox at the Last Chance Saloon in Big Horn, Wyoming…

That moment sparked a decades-long fascination with Hemingway, searching for clues to his rarely told connection to my home state. Along the way I spent a summer following in his Paris footsteps, founded and hosted my June-in-Paris Left Bank Writers Retreat – and uncovered stormy details of Ernest’s marriage to his second wife, Pauline Pfeiffer, and the special role Wyoming played in that relationship. Now I’m excited to announce the upcoming publication of my new book COCKEYED HAPPY: Hemingway’s Wyoming Summers with Pauline, due out from Chicago Review Press in fall 2021.

Meanwhile, the manuscript for my second book weaving Ernest Hemingway’s life and craft through its pages is nearing completion, and workshops, events and travel opportunities are in the works, so stay tuned!
