In her historical novels, Annapolis author Erika Robuck invents everyday men and women whose lives intersect with those of acclaimed American authors. She figures that fiction is sometimes the best way of learning something true. "I'm interested in famous writers and how they used the people in their lives," Robuck says. "They take things, and they don't always ask permission. It's such a betrayal. " Robuck's current novel, "Hemingway's Girl," tells the story of Mariella Bennet, a young, half-Cuban housemaid who must negotiate the marital minefield created by Ernest Hemingway and his second wife, Pauline Pfeiffer.

Grand Cru, a mainstay of Govan's Belvedere Square, is a quiet little secret of a good cocktail joint. You associate the place with wine, I'm sure. But they have a pretty nice little drink program and a team of bartenders who can make you just about anything your heart desires. But if you'd rather let the menu do the ordering for you, let me suggest you try The Old Man and the Sea - the drink not the acclaimed novel, though both are Hemingway crafted. Cuba 1935.

After watching the movie "Silver Linings Playbook," which is sure to garner lots of Academy Award nominations, I thought we should create another category: Best scene by a book. (If you don't mind spoilers, you can get a taste of the scene in the preview for the movie. ) The works of Ernest Hemingway figure into the plot of the movie, about the unlikely romance of two troubled young people. And "A Farewell to Arms," makes a hilarious appearance -- and exit -- in one key scene.

In that spirit, American Heritage does solid service with its second annual list of the most overrated and underrated people, things, ideas, and events in U.S. history.You may find yourself lingering upon the "overrated" list, especially given the scathing treatment some of the subjects receive. Among those whose reputations are cut down to size: Gloria Steinem, Al Capone, Ernest Hemingway, Isaac Asimov, the 1960s, Shel Silverstein, John Adams, Boss Tweed, atomic power, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Hunter S.

It was very beautiful in the spring and summer, the bay blue and bright and usually white caps on the lake out beyond the point from the breeze blowing from Charlevoix and Lake Michigan."-- From "Up in Michigan"by Ernest HemingwayHORTON BAY, Mich. -- The first thing you should know about Ernest Hemingway and Horton Bay -- and maybe even about this sliver of northern Michigan, where the water is clear and blue, and where the wooded hills roll like gentle waves, is this: He got it right.

KEY WEST, FLA. // Only one road leads from Key Largo all the way to Key West, so you'll get wet before you get lost. For the directionally impaired, that makes things easier. Yet the 100 or so miles between Key Largo in the north and Key West on the southwestern end cover a lot of territory. The Keys comprise 1,700 islands, after all. Harry Truman visited 11 times between 1946 and 1952. Ernest Hemingway spent 11 years in Key West. I had two days to take it in. For the most part, U.S. 1 is two lanes -- sometimes highway, sometimes city street.

KEY WEST, Fla. -- For more than 40 years, they have lounged on Ernest Hemingway's bed, lolled in his garden and sipped water from the urinal he dragged home from his favorite saloon, delighting tourists from around the world. But now the nearly 50 cats at the Ernest Hemingway Home & Museum, about half of which bear a sixth toe on their front paws, are felines non grata - scofflaws who, the federal government says, must be caged, kept under guard or removed. The U.S. Department of Agriculture says the author's one-time home in Key West needs a license to exhibit the descendants of the original polydactyl, or extra-toed, cat he is said to have received from a ship captain in the 1930s.

OCEAN CITY - Some people come here for the sun and sand. Some come because it's a family tradition. But this week, several hundred people are here because they hope to hook a million bucks.
