The two famous authors and great friends had two very different perspectives when it came to writing and having a drink.
The life of the poet, publisher, and playboy defined the decadent decade but he has been largely forgotten during the last century.
He never goes out of print. He’s still taught in schools. But most of his novels look more ponderous and posturing (silly, even) with each passing year. Ah, but those stories.
The new book ‘A Drinkable Feast’ explores the cocktails and bars favored by Ernest Hemingway and his friends in 1920s Paris.
The classic applejack drink is featured in ‘The Sun Also Rises’ and is quite tasty.
The late senator first read ‘For Whom the Bell Tolls’ when he was 12 years old, and the book’s hero, Robert Jordan, became an enduring role model.
A newly published short story by the iconic American author, set in WWII Paris, grew out of a “moveable feast” very different from the one he had lived there in the 1920s.
