Hemingway and the Trendiness of the Badly Behaved Writer


While most know Hemingway to be a favorite of stereotypical “macho” literature buffs, what with the author’s tendencies for vicious criticism and outright brawling, not many know just how vulnerable he was starting out as a complete nobody in the world of letters.
