Author. An Idaho outdoorsman, writer and son of Ernest Hemingway. He is the father of actress Mariel Hemingway, actress-model Margaux (who died of a drug overdose in 1996), and an older daughter, Muffet. His early life was recounted in his father's" A Moveable Feast." The boy spent his toddler years in Parisian cafes frequented by writers such as F. Scott Fitzgerald. Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Tolkas, were his godparents and frequently baby-sat him. Hemingway recalled his relationship with his father in his 1986 memoir "The Misadventures of a Fly Fisherman: My Life With and Without Papa." He also wrote at least three other books on fishing. He was a decorated World War II veteran who spent six months in a German prisoner of war camp. In November 1944 he was shot in the arm and shoulder.
