you’re the window to my wall
you’re the sweat that drips down my balls
AUTHOR OF THE DAY: Ernest Hemingway
Ernest Hemingway is one of the most famous American authors of the 20th century. He was born on July 21, 1899 in Oak Park Illinois. During his high school years, Hemingway wrote for his school newspaper, Trapeze and Tabula, as a sports writers. After graduation, he skipped college, and began to work for the Kansas City Star. He recalls, "On the Star you were forced to learn to write a simple declarative sentence. This is useful to anyone. Newspaper work will not harm a young writer and could help him if he gets out of it in time." Later on this skill would tremendously influenced his seamlessly, straight-forward prose.
After the United States entered World War I, Hemingway joined as an ambulance driver in the Italian Army. Hemingway then returned to the United States injured at the young age of 20, but began working at the Toronto Star in Michigan. He, then, met Hadley Richardson, his first wife. The couple moved to Paris, where he wrote his first novel, The Sun Also Rises. During the twenties, he was in the company of T.S. Eliot, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Gertude Stein to name a few. Genuinely impressed by him, Fitzgerald brought Hemingway’s manuscript, The Sun Also Rises to his publisher. If it had not been for Fitzgerald, Hemingway might have not been a household name now.
He used his experience in World War I to write A Farewell to Arms (1929). His novel was a huge success, but his personal life proved to be stormy. His marriage was in turmoil, but Hemingway’s reputation always suggested that he was never without a women. He married four times. Naomi Wood has studied Hemingway’s relationships with women and has concluded that during 40 years of his life he was unwed for about 7 and a half months.
