The Blog Also Rises
July 21, 1899 Oak Park, Illinois
Happy Birthday, Papa! Thank you for the captivating stories, novels, and memoirs, and more (Death in the Afternoon, e.g.) written in a prose style original to you. You won my devotion with the first of your paragraphs I read for an American Novel class. It began A Farewell to Arms, and it struck me immediately as unique and remarkable. Now I am always reading something by you or about your life. Rest in peace, Papa Hemingway, assured of the Immortality you deserve!
Thank you, Walter, for reading and caring about Hemingway some 118 years after his birth and 56 years after his death. Very best to you, Christine
