Whaddaya say, Jim, shall we head over for next year's running?!


We should do that in the USA! Imagine the amont of fat frat boy injuries! Millennials flying head over heels! wink

From what I've read, many of those guys are quite drunk and are almost as dangerous as the bulls!

Well I guess I'm kinda back to Hemingway per "Papa's own assertion." Am now rereading Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

Completed. Amazing thing to read again after the first go-round forty+ years ago. Like so much else as age advances, get a perspective beyond an impressionable teenager's. Can't think of a better way to proceed after reading a Twain bio.

Need a break. Will head back to EH short stories on the fly.

Starting a re-read of The Garden of Eden. I was going to give the film adaptation a look, but it's so obviously going to be awful. wink

Hunter S. Thompson's Wife Returns Antlers He Stole from Hemingway's Home:

Yes, Hunter S. Thompson, another globetrotting author, alcohol and firearms enthusiast who struggled with depression and eventually took his own life.

Howard, since we're the only Hemingway fans here, I thought you'd be interested in this book:

Everybody Behaves Badly: The True Story Behind Hemingway's Masterpiece The Sun Also Rises

https://www.amazon.com/dp/0544276000/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=38OM5Z5SEZH2D&coliid=I1XAC490PNCZCI

I hope Lesley Blume's book isn't the usual predictable reactionary feminist claptrap. It has received largely positive reviews, though.


It's getting tremendous reviews. smile Here's a pretty long Vanity Fair excerpt on the whole bloody affair:

At the severe risk of sounding like a Hem-ogonist, did you see the photo of the author on that Amazon link? She's gaw-jus! eek

She probably knows it, too.

Since the author looks like she does, then she *definitely* knows it.
