A fun fact about Ernest Hemingway, Nobel Prize winner for his book The Old Man and The Sea. He was a master of the art of narrative, which has had lasting influence over contemporary authors across the world.
DID YOU KNOW? A good friend of Hemingway was F. Scott Fitzgerald, who once wrote a ten-page letter to him advising how he should end his novel A Farewell To Arms. Ever eloquent and brief, Hemingway replied with three words, "kiss my ass."

"everyone has a secret world inside them. i mean everybody. all of the people in the whole world, I mean everybody - no matter how dull and boring they are on the outside. inside them, they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds...not just one world. hundreds of them. thousands, maybe."
