Description : Ernest Hemingway: The Angler As Artist, demonstrates the influence of the writer's interest and participation in sports, especially fishing, upon his journalism, the Nick Adams' short stories, and the novels, The Old Man and the Sea and Islands in the Stream. The author's life and work personify the -strenuous life- philosophy in American culture which includes writers such as Stephen Crane and Norman Mailer, whose work is characterized by this competitive ethic. This -aesthetic of contest- distinguishes Hemingway's journalism and its fictional usage in many short stories and several novels elevates fishing above mere sport and leisure activity into an important exercise in ordering and reinforcing an entire philosophy of life. Scholars of American literature, who frequently note the presence of bullfighting, and combat in Death in the Afternoon, Green Hills of Africa, A Farewell to Arms, and For Whom the Bell Tolls, will gain additional insight into Hemingway's life and thematic concerns by comprehending this -aesthetic of contest- involved with fishing."

Description : In this entertaining homage to the golden age of the cocktail, illustrator Edward Hemingway and writer Mark Bailey present the best (and thirstiest) American writers, their favorite cocktails, true stories of their saucy escapades, and intoxicating excerpts from their literary works. It’s the perfect blend of classic cocktail recipes, literary history, and tales of the good old days of extravagant Martini lunches and delicious excess. When Algonquin Round Table legend Robert Benchley was asked if he knew that drinking was a slow death, Benchley took a sip of his cocktail and replied, “So who’s in a hurry?” Hunter S. Thompson took Muhammad Ali’s health tip to eat grapefruit every day; he just added liquor to the mix. Invited to a “come as you are” party, F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife, Zelda, arrived in their pajamas ready for their cocktail of choice: a Gin Rickey. Forty-three classic American writers, forty-three authentic cocktail recipes, forty-three telling anecdotes about the high life, and forty-three samples of the best writing in literature –Hemingway & Bailey’s Bartending Guide to Great American Writers delivers straight-up fun.
