    Default Hemingway a Russian spy?

    He was a great writer, but as a person, he was a real son of a bitch.

    He was a weird individual.

    For Whom the Bell Tolls and The Old Man and the Sea are excellent works.

    So was Faulkner there feud was long lived. Hemingway could say more in a short story what Faulkner could say in novel.

    To be fair, it's a little dated.

    I haven't seen it. I did rewatch half of the Star Wars this weekend.. well, Sunday. And caught Galaxy Quest about 5ish that morning, Nutz dropped a quote of it earlier in the week so that masterpiece was stuck in my head.

    Missing out. It is widely regarded as the best movie ever made in history by people who regard such things...

    I don't disagree "Absalom" is brilliant . Southern writers are my favorite. "To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee, then Mark Twain's "Huckleberry Fin", Edisto" by Powell.

    I enjoy reading stuff about the Civil War during and after.

    I recently re-read, a "Time to Kill" by Grisham.

    My youngest is about to take AP Lit and the reading list is crazy.

    Currently re-reading Walden by Thoreau (amongst endless medical literature). There is certainly some value is his perspective on minimalism/materialism and simplicity in nature.
