A Changeable Book

Hemingway classic coming out in a new, cleaned-up version.

I remember working at Macmillan many years ago when it owned Scribner. There was one book by Hemingway that we would not grant permission to reprint from, since each of the three heirs wanted 50% of the income from any sub-rights deals.

The Hemingway estate should be Exhibit A in the argument "Why we need a shorter copyright term in the United States."
