There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.

Winner of the Pulitzer and Nobel Prizes, Hemingway’s economical style in short stories, novels, memoir and journalism had a tremendous influence on world literature. He is credited with inspiring a range of literary heavyweights, from Beat to Western writers and much in between. Hemingway grew up in Oak Park, and at Oak Park-River Forest High school starred in track, football and water polo, wrote for the school yearbook and literary journal, and was active on the debate team. In his Oak Park Avenue parlor, Hemingways’s musician mother taught her son classical music lessons that he incorporated into the contrapunctal structure of For Whom the Bells Toll. Hemingway’s legacy is so vast that even a minor planet is named after him.
