Wherever you come down on this continuum about one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century, PBS will challenge or confirm your beliefs with “Hemingway,” a three-part, six-hour Ken Burns/Lynn Novick documentary series airing April 5-7. … The all-star cast of voice actors includes musician and playwright Jeff Daniels as Hemingway and Meryl Streep, Keri Russell, Mary-Louise Parker and Patricia Clarkson as his wives.
“Stacy Keach joins the show to reflect on his legendary career, particularly his portrayal of Hemingway on the stage, in the classic miniseries, and in his audio recording of short stories.
“Keach compares the art of acting to the act of writing and gets to the heart of Hemingway’s knack for conveying emotion in spare prose.

“As a special bonus, hear Keach’s brilliant read of our “one true sentence” introduction!
