Dieselpunks

Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

I know. I am a week late. And there is no excuse for it. (Although I have not seen anyone else here comment on the event that took place exactly 50 years ago either).

In the night from Friday 1 July to 2 July, a Nobel-prize awarded writer stepped out of bed, went down the stairs to the basement storage room, fetched a two-barreled shotgun, inserted two shells.. – the rest is history. There could not have been any other ending to Ernest Hemingway’s life. A life worth remembering, for his contribution to modern writing that changed literature forever and an amazing lifestyle.

By the way. The Papa biography I enjoyed most is the series from Michael Reynolds, including a.o. The Paris Years and Hemingway in the 1930s.

We will never see another man like Hemingway. He was truly unique.

Hemingway to me was the definition of "Manly Man". Not only were his works were stations around it, but a guy that would pay his friends to fight him? I mean come on.

...and great to compare it with his own account in The Moveable Feast... (published in 1964 after his death)

You can find a vivid and somewhat surprising portrait of Hemingway the Parisian in Shakespeare and Company by Sylvia Beach, first published when Papa was still alive and kicking (1956).
