    Funny. I just started reading Mine Were of Trouble by Peter Kemp. He was a young Englishman fresh out of college who volunteered for the Nationalist cause in Spain.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    It was a naive adventure, he eventually realised it, all through Hemingway’s life he sought adventure and new columns to write about.
    Every book and short story derives from
    an experience or story he had heard first hand. Hemingway wasn’t a true writer in the sense we know nowadays.

    The PBS series made much of his not being able to live up to the myth he created.

    It was Gertrude Stein that mentored Hemingway to improve, and fashion his writing, he also got strength from other writers he befriended, Joyce, Pound, and others, his self doubt in his ability lasted all of his life.
