    one of the photos – in big sweater – by Canadian photographer Yousuf Karsh (1908 – 2002). Also – oops, my entry appears twice (maybe webmaster can correct this) – problem with Verisign code -- & this reminds me, Hemingway, & all writers before him, of course wrote without PCs, word-processing programs / spellcheck, for better or worse -- & in fact picture there, him with notepad -- Whenever there are PC Problems, maybe all of us wonder, maybe the ‘good ol days’ better? – all one needed was pen & paper, imagination, & modicum of discipline!

    1) ‘heroic battle with depression’ – I’ve had similar problems, also alcoholism (now sober in AA) – but in Ernest’s case, from what I know, the treatments at the time did more harm than good – unsophisticated electroshock etc., maybe was a contributing factor; 2) wanted to ask – read somewhere that he said, ‘Taras Bulba’ (N. Gogol) one of 10-best books ever – is this is true, what are the other 9?

    Ernest Hemingway lived a life complete. He was a man of the world, well traveled, well read, and close to nature. He smiled often, drank more, and never lost a chance for adventure.
