He was also author of one of the funniest and most scurrilous memoirs of Joyce, who called his book 'the office boy's revenge'

After reading of the Bognor connection some 30 years ago I found a copy of the Ward Lock Guide for 1929, roughly the right period. Intriguingly, the entry for Sidlesham church lists 'curious names, striking examples being Earwicker, Glue, Gravy, Boniface, Anker...'

He did pass through Paris later, but that's not how the story is presented in the book

There are layers of fantasy, maybe partly from Hemingway with added details from Hotchner. But Hemingway left Paris for Florida in 1929, and Toklas was published in 1933.

Ernest Hemingway, Pablo Picasso and James Joyce gang up on Gertrude Stein, a story supposedly told by Hemingway to Hotchner in Sloppy Joe's in Key West in 1955. Hotchner claims he took notes. How many improbabilities can you spot?
