Paris Review – The Art of Fiction No. 21, Ernest Hemingway.
I love looks at famous writers, especially those I admire or consider influences. This is a great, rare look at Hemingway’s workspace and a bit of his process.
I love articles like this because they humanize literary giants that sometimes seem larger than life. I particularly like the description of his workspace. Hemingway is a bit of a clutter victim who has an office he had built, but uses his bedroom instead.
This particular interview was conducted by George Plimpton, who is a legendary journalist. You probably know his work.
