This episode will focus on the Spanish Civil War and how one particular incident – the murder of accused Fascist spy José Robles – ruptured the relationship between Ernest Hemingway and John Dos Passos.

To sort out the many moving parts to this chapter of Hemingway’s life, we welcome Stephen Koch, the author of The Breaking Point: Hemingway, Dos Passos, and the Murder of José Robles. Koch takes us through the complicated relationship between Hemingway and Dos Passos, what ended it, and how it ended. Koch also explores Robles’s role in Spain, Martha Gellhorn’s presence, and the legacy of this intricate web of relationships.

Join us as we discuss Hemingway, Dos Passos, and the Robles Affair!
