Ernest Hemingway

1899 (Cicero, Ill.) – 1961 (Ketchum, Idaho)

Anderson suggested he go to Paris and introduced him to Stein, who helped him out. Pound, like Stein a strong influence, was part of the Paris expatriate scene, as were Lewis and MacLeish. Fitzgerald drank with him there, his wife accusing them of having an affair. Miró met him at a gym where both boxed. Dos Passos had been a great friend until they fell out bitterly in civil-war Spain (where Buñuel got him and Ivens papers to film). Gellhorn was one of his wives. Joyce used to drink with Hemingway, provoking altercations then hiding behind him. Baker danced with him all night, wearing only a fur coat.
