Hemingway's boat

Started to read above book by Paul Hendrickson. Very curious and different approach to biography. Will pick a photograph and then discuss in detail what was happening in life and the world in general. Has started to discuss the change in his style from incredibly sparse to slightly more loosely sparse. Hendrickson believes this was because of his new boat (called Pilar):

"I believe Pilar was a key part of the change, allowing him to go further out where you don't see shoreline."
