A bronze statue of late Nobel-prize winning author Ernest Hemingway is seen at the 'Floridita' bar in Havana in this July 2, 2011 file photo. For a writer who explored the world of men without women, Hemingway certainly liked to have women around him. The Nobel Prize-winning author had four wives in all with barely a day between each changeover, as well as friendships with Ava Gardner, Ingrid Bergman and Marlene Dietrich. Now a fictionalized account of the marriages, inspired by his letters, examines what it might have been like to be the wives. "We think of him as a womanizer, we don't think of him as a husband. That's a role that's subservient to the big-game hunter, the deep-sea fisherman, the war correspondent," said Naomi Wood, whose novel "Mrs Hemingway" has just been published.
