Ernest Hemingway

(1899-1961)

Hemingway wrote on many of his favorite pastimes: skiing, bullfighting, hunting and fishing. "The Old Man and the Sea" won him the Pulitzer Prize.

Hemingway also wrote on social ills with "To Have and Have Not" and with "A Farewell to Arms" he combined a romantic plot with a war story.

Hemingway's best-selling book is "For Whom the Bell Tolls."

With his suicide by shooting he left behind several manuscripts; "Islands in the Stream" and "A Moveable Feast" were published after his death.
