Paul and Me is an intimate account by the bestselling author A. E. Hotchner of his remarkable, enduring, fifty-three year friendship with Hollywood legend Paul Newman. Hotchner shares their adventures: From travels across the globe to jointly owning fishing boats to coping with the loss of Newman’s son, Scott, to starting their food company, Newman’s Own, as a prank which has given all of its $300 million of profits to charities.
A. E. Hotchner is the author of the international bestsellers Papa Hemingway, Doris Day: Her Own Story, Sophia, and his own memoir, King of the Hill. He has adapted many of Hemingway’s works for the screen.
