Hemingway’s son

The sad story of Ernest Hemingway’s transsexual son, Gregory, has “carried over beyond the grave”:

The last of his four wives and five of his eight children are battling over his estate in court, and his sex change could well prove to be the key to resolving the case….

At one point in the 1990s he was sleeping in a dilapidated Volkswagen. When he went ahead with the sex change, he was so parsimonious about the cost that for several months he went around with only one breast.

“I’ve spent hundreds of thousands of dollars trying not to be a transvestite,” Gregory once said. (S)he died in the women’s wing of the Miami-Dade county jail. (Via A&L Daily.)
