Later Years

Hadley saw Hemingway only once after their divorce - she and Mowrer ran into him while vacationing in Wyoming. When she left her marriage to Hemingway, she left behind the publicity. She died on January 22, 1979 in Lakeland, Florida, at the age of 87.

In 1992, the definitive biography of Hadley Richardson, Hadley by Gioia Diliberto, was published. The book, which is based on extensive research including the author's exclusive access to a series of taped conversations with Richardson, was reissued in 2011 as Paris Without End: The True Story of Hemingway's First Wife. In 2011, a book titled The Paris Wife: A Novel was published, telling the entire story of Hadley Richardson's relationship with Hemingway in "her voice." Although a work of fiction, its narrative is faithful to the known facts.
