Ernest Hemingway Birth Anniversary Tomorrow


July 21 marks the birth anniversary of one of America’s most famous authors.  Ernest Hemingway was born on July 21, 1899, and died in  1961.  His distinctive writing style, characterized by economy and understatement was a big influence on 20th-century fiction.  Hemingway lived a life of adventure, which was reflected in his writing.


Hemingway is probably my favorite author.  He grew up in Oak Park, Illinois, but his family spent summers on Walloon Lake near Petosky, Michigan.  Many of Hemingway’s short stories are based in northern Michigan.


Hemingway is probably best known for the novels  The Sun Also Rises, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and The Old Man & the Sea.

He has won the Pulitzer Prize and Nobel Prize for literature, and his works are considered classics of American literature.  He was a master of the “one true sentence.”  I have read almost everything he has published, and continue to enjoy re-reading his works.

If you haven’t read Hemingway, I encourage you to visit your local library or bookstore to give him a try.  His work still stands up to this day.
