Ernest Hemingway was born in Chicago in 1899, the second of six children. In 1917, he joined the Kansas City Star as a cub reporter. The following year he volunteered as an ambulance driver on the Italian front where he was badly wounded but decorated for his services. He returned to America in 1919 and married in 1921. In 1922, he reported on the Greco-Turkish war before resigning from journalism to devote himself to fiction. He settled in Paris with other expatriots like Ezra Pound and Gertrude Stein. He was passionately involved with bullfighting, big gane hunting and deep-sea fishing. Recognition of his position in contemporary literature came in 1954 when he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, following the publication of "The Old Man and the Sea". He died in 1961.
"An excellent story-teller, intense and skillful" * Daily Telegraph * "He can perform prodigies. He can fascinate us by pure evocation, by the tensity of the situation" * Times Literary Supplement * "Hemingway's style, at its best, is a superb vehicle for revealing tenderness of feeling beneath descriptions of brutality" * Guardian *
