The themes and trappings are familiar for an Ernest Hemingway plot – Paris, wartime, talk of books and wine and the scars of battle. For decades, however, Hemingway's story "A Room on the Garden Side" has been little-known outside the scholarly community."A Room on the Garden Side" is set in the Ritz hotel (Hemingway liked to say that he liberated the Ritz bar) and is narrated by a Hemingway stand-in called Robert who shares the author's own nickname – Papa.Other posthumous Hemingway books include the novels "The Garden of Eden" and "Islands in the Stream, and "The Dangerous Summer," a nonfiction account of bullfighting.Hemingway wrote other World War II stories over the last decade of his life.
