On this day in 1899, Ernest Hemingway was born. His legacy in literature has enriched the fabric of the American literary cannon, and his work is timeless. He is one of the most translated authors in the world because his simple sentence construction retains its meaning from one language to the next.
I have been a long time admirer of “Papa”, as he was known, and was inspired to write my novel, HEMINGWAY’S GIRL, after visiting his home in Key West, reading his Pulitzer Prize winning novella, THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA, and his thinly veiled memoir, A MOVEABLE FEAST.
To celebrate Hemingway’s birthday, I’m giving away one signed paperback and one signed audiobook of HEMINGWAY’S GIRL. To win, please comment below with your favorite Hemingway work, or what you’d most like to read by him if you have not yet done so. Also, kindly indicate if you would prefer to read paperback or audio. Finally, please spread the word on social media. (Contest ends Wednesday, July 24th. US only, please.)
Viva la Papa! 🙂
