Jim Harrison (December 11, 1937 – March 26, 2016) and Dink Bruce met when Harrison began taking fishing trips to Key West. Dink is the son of Otto "Toby" and Betty Bruce, who were employees of the Hemingway family in Key West. These titles came directly from Dink and were signed during their many years of friendship. Many have comical inscriptions and some have drawings. $5,000.00.
