Four Days with Hemingway’s Ghost is not a story of spooks and goblins. It’s a powerful story about two men from two very different times. One man is mortal, the other is immortal. One is painfully ordinary, the other world famous.

Jack Phelan is a forty-two-year-old underachiever who lives in South Florida. Although he mows lawns for a living, he’s not what you might expect. He’s got an exceptionally sharp mind and is a self-educated Hemingway aficionado.

After Jack gets into an unlikely accident he’s flown by helicopter to the nearest hospital, where he remains in a coma for four days. But somehow, minutes after he blacks out, he finds himself in Key West, Florida–rubbing shoulders with an aged Ernest Hemingway.

Hem has been sent back down to help determine whether or not Jack has what it takes to write a book for “The Main Man above the clouds.” But what Ernest doesn’t know is that the book is to be about him. And that its purpose is to change the world’s perception of the swaggering, hard-knuckled, macho myth he has become.

Over the next four days, Jack Phelan and Ernest Hemingway travel to the legendary author’s old haunts and meet up with many of his long gone friends. Some of these reunions are rollicking good times, others are highly emotional tests of strength. But wait. When their time together comes to an end, the story is still not over. That’s when things really get interesting.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Tom Winton is an author that knows how to grab on to your heart strings while slapping you with a good dose of reality. This book is a home run! Four Days with Hemingway’s Ghost made me stop and take an account of my life and inspired me to start chasing those dreams that I buried long ago. I am forever a fan of Mr. Winton’s work. KUDOS!!!!


This book is probably not one I would ordinarily read, and yet I loved it! I highly recommend this story which I found entertaining, interesting and inspiring. When you thought the book was at an end it wasn’t and the reader rode the journey with the main character all the way through allowing one to have a smile on their face with the close of the book.


Author Tom Winton’s words captivate; painting vivid scenes which leap from the page to the mind, exciting every sense with tantalizing description. He masterfully weaves the reader in and out between a dream-like state and harsh reality. Treat yourself to this incredibly satisfying read that will reach the deepest recesses of one’s soul.


Tom Winton weaves a story of such credibility that there was no doubt in my mind that for the four days he remains in a coma he really was in the great man’s company. Even without his amazing story-telling talent, Winton’s beautiful writing alone is enough to make me buy his next book.


I’m so glad to have come across this fine novel. It is now nestled comfortably on my ‘top shelf’ beside many other talented writers. I couldn’t put this one down. “Four Days With Hemingway’s Ghost” is highly recommended. This reader will certainly go fetch another work by Tom Winton. Thank you, Tom, for a great read and learning experience.
