Cristen Hemingway Jaynes is an American author based in London. Beginning at a young age, Cristen began to explore America—first on road trips with her mother, traveling from Seattle to Key West, then on her own by Greyhound bus and Amtrak train. The American landscape, with its roadside cafes, strip malls, and wanderers, figures prominently in her fiction. She is the author of the short story collection The Smallest of Entryways and she can be found at wwww.cristenhemingway.com.
Cristen remembers ‘the chilly sunshine, the smell of warming pine needles, and the bright green cemetery,’ wondering ‘who was this man?’ ERNEST’S WAY helps her—and her readers—answer this enduring question. Makes the gift of good books a bit easier.
