My Crush on Ernest

"I didn't want to kiss you goodbye, that was the trouble; I wanted to kiss you goodnight.  And there's a lot of difference."  
Ernest Hemingway

I just finished reading Hemingway's Girl by Erika Robuck.  It was one of those novels that got me thinking.  Daydreaming.  It's been a while since a book has had that effect on me and I really did fall in love a little bit with Hemingway's character.  He was brash and arrogant - but in the way that women can't resist.  I'm now beyond eager to read "The Old Man and the Sea" so that I can get a better idea of who Hemingway actually was - he has been said to put a lot of himself and those he knew into his characters.
