Ernest Hemingway Short Biography:
Ernest Miller Hemingway was born on July 21st, 1899 in Oak Park, Illinois, which is a suburb of Chicago. Hemingway was the first son, and second child, born to Clarence Edmonds Hemingway-a country doctor, and Grace Hall Hemingway.
Hemingway's mother had wanted twins, and when this didn't happen, she often dressed young Ernest and his sister Marcelline (a full 18 months older) in similar clothes and with similar hairstyles, maintaining the pretense of the two children being "twins." This has led to some people wondering about Ernest Hemingway and his twin, but in reality he has no twin, but an older sister.
Many academic critics wonder if this had some influence on the recurring themes in Hemingway's works that point to destructive interactions between males and females in general.
After high school, Hemingway did not want to go to college and so at age 18 he bean his writing career as a journalist. Ernest Hemingway - journalist, started as a reporter for The Kansas City Star. Although he worked at this newspaper for only six months, this style of writing would influence all of his fiction writing with short, crisp, clear senetences.
In honor of the centennial year of Hemingway's birth (1899), in 1999 The Star named Hemingway its top reporter of the last hundred years.
Hemingway would serve in World War I. He failed getting into the army because of poor eyes, so Ernest Heminway worked for the Red Cross as an ambulance driver. Hemingway's first story: "A Natural History of the Dead" was based on his first experience with death, picking up corpses of women from a destroyed arms factory.
In a quick flurry of moves after the war Ernest Hemingway would move to Toronto, Chicago, and after marrying his wife, they would move to Paris. Here Ernest Hemingway would learn from Gertrude Stein, and eventually get into an incredibly famous fued.
Hemingway helped make famous the term "The Lost Generation," and as a novelist and short story writer he would become face.
Ernest Miller Hemingway (July 21, 1899 - July 2, 1961) was an American novelist, short-story writer, and journalist. He was one of the earliest authors to win both the Pulitzer Prize for fiction (for The Old Man and the Sea) and the Nobel Prize for literature, placing him with the likes of John Steinbeck, Sinclair Lewis, and William Faulkner.
Ernest Hemingway is still often lifted up as an example to graduate students of how to be a successful writer.
Although he was an accomplished man, there was a darkness and depression that ended with Ernest Hemingway committing suicide July 2, 1961.
Ernest Hemingway's First Novel
Ernest Hemingway The Torrents of Spring | Ernest Hemingway In Our Time | Ernest Hemingway Three Stories and Ten Poems
Ernest Hemingway is one of the all time greats of American literature, whose style was a stark contrast (if not complete polar opposite) of his literary rival, William Faulkner.
If you're an amateur book collector looking for the very first Ernest Hemingway novel, you're going to have a hard time finding it. Hemingway had to pay his dues like most famous writers, and when someone refers to "Hemingway's first novel" they might be referring to one of three works:
Three Stories and Ten Poems
In Our Time
Torrents of Spring
These are the earliest works of Hemingway. "Three Stories and Ten Poems" is the rarest, and was actually self-published. Only 300 copies were printed in 1923, a perfect copy of the first edition of 3 stories and 10 poems would now sell for $65,000. Even a copy in beat up rough shape is worth $3,500 minimum.
Ironically, "In Our Time" was supposed to be Hemingway's first novel, but publishing was delayed, so this wasn't printed until 1924. There were only 170 copies made o the first version, released by William Bird Press of Paris. A perfect first edition of "In Our Time" is worth $50,000, while a 1925 New York printing is woth about the same, but only with a dust jacket.
The Torrents of Spring by Ernest Hemingway was printed in 1926, and was the work that really gained national and international attention for the young author. A "Torrents of Spring" first draft with dust jacket is worth around $20,000 in excellent condition, and 15% in worn, but good, condition.
Ernest Hemingway Novels from Amazon
Ernest Hemingway The Old Man and the Sea
Ernest Hemingway Boat | Ernest Hemingway Cuba | Keywest Ernest Hemingway |
The Old Man and the Sea is one of Hemingway's most famous books, and was written while Ernest Hemingway was in Cuba. In real life Hemingway loved fishing and outdoors activities, and he was often in Cuba, to the point where "Hemingway's Cuba" has actually become slang referring to the works that came from that time, influenced by Cuban surroundings.
"The Old Man and the Sea" is a prime example of Man against Nature, and also an incredible metaphor for Man against Himself. The fisherman is brought by this amazing fish to the edge of oblivion, to the point where he states to the fish that he no longer even cares who kills who, and at that revelation the fisherman triumphs, even when others on the island can not see it.
This was a brilliant novel, and Hemingway was quoted as saying he revised "Old Man" over 200 time before he was finally satisfied with the final story.
Hemingway was no stranger to major sports fishing, and this first hand experience with fishing and the Cuban culture comes through vividly in this masterpiece.

Ernest Hemingway Havana | Hemingway Castro Pics | Hemingway Shaking Castro's Hand
It's no secret that Ernest Hemingway was a huge fan of Cuba. Hemingway often times vacationed for long periods of time in Cuba, especially around Havana. He wrote many of his classic works in Cuba, including The Old Man and the Sea.
Hemingway was as loved by many Cubans as he loved the nation. They know where Hemingway would drink, stay, and write. Those places are still well known among locals in Havana even today.
Cuba held a special place in Ernest Hemingway's heart, and it can be strange in today's world to see him shaking hands with Fidel Castro, but this reminds you of a more peaceful time, and shows that great literature can transcend politics, language, and nations alike - which in a way might just be Ernest Hemingway's greatest accomplishment.

Oh Yeah - the Hemingway Drinking Guide
You knew it had to happen. I've actually waited years and years for someone to finish the holy tome. So okay, it might not be your traditional book hound type of antique book when dealing with Ernest Hemingway. However that being said, no master of the English fiction world has had such an encyclopedia of alcoholic knowledge and mixed drinks the way that Hemingway has. You saw whiskey and cokes appear everywhere, and there were mixed drinks in varieties and mixtures that are hard to trace back anywhere else.
In other words, when it comes to Ernest Hemingway - we needed a book all about the drinking man. And now we have it. This is why is on this list - because you can't go far reading Hemingway or reading about Hemingway before you're going to come across cocktails of some kind. Philip Greene's To Have and To Have Another: A Hemingway Cocktail Companion
Don't get me wrong….I love John Steinbeck and Sinclair Lewis - but what other author of this era can even remotely claim to create an entire future book and the admiration of thousands of alcoholic writers and bloggers based purely on his reputation for loving the drink? No disrespect to the awesome Hunter S. Thompson - but before him and even after there was only one "Ernest mother f**king Hemingway!"
If you want to learn drinking from the master of drink - it's not about the low calorie cocktails or even the most alcoholic cocktails - it's all about respecting the master. So it might not be your normal definition of an antique Ernest Hemingway first edition book, but it wouldn't be right to mention the master without the modern Hemingway guide to all things alcohol.
