    According to some, Hemingway was a bit of a crackpot when it came to giving advice. Once he told an aspiring writer that they should write something like 80 drafts and wait a year between each one. Hopefully the poor sod didn’t take it literally. Now I’m going to have to read some of his more rounded advice!

      There a book that came out last year detailing Hemingway’s life called THE PARIS WIFE. I have not read it but it’s told from the perspective of his wife and she details some fairly odd behavior.
