I have been enjoying the nostalgic and beautifully written short pieces in By-Line: Ernest Hemingway; especially Hemingway’s 1923 essay for the Toronto Star, “Christmas on the Roof of the World.” In this exuberant essay, which was written when Ernest was 24 years old, all of the wonder of Christmas and travel are expressed beginning with Christmas morning in Switzerland. Hemingway’s joy is undeniable as he describes Christmas day with Hadley and Chink:
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all. The above is a link to an article in The Hemingway Project about early short stories written by Hemingway. Enjoy. Thank you for reading this Blog and being interested in Ernest Hemingway.
