I Blame Ernest Hemingway

Every male writer with an ounce of testosterone owes a big debt to Papa. For example, without his example, how would James Jones, Norman Mailer, Hunter S.

Hello Mr. Jones,

I agree! In fact I think I'm going to dig my safari jacket out of the closet and start wearing again!

I stumbled upon your blog via the Hemingway Foundation's website.

I LOVE your writing and am looking forward to reading the whole thing.


Best,
Bill
