An upcoming book about Ernest Hemingway will include research on the parallels between his work and that of his less-famous friend.
Professor Andrew Feldman, author of Ernesto: The Untold Story of Hemingway in Revolutionary Cuba, doesn’t claim that Hemingway plagiarized Enrique Serpa’s work.
He does, however, say in the Guardian that there’s firm evidence that Hemingway had read a particular novel by Serpa well before he wrote To Have and Have Not, which bears key resemblances to Serpa's work.
Feldman also noted similarities between The Old Man and the Sea (1952) and Serpa’s The Marlin (1936).
