In 20th century American literature, few individuals stand as tall as Ernest Hemingway. He singlehandedly defined Modernist fiction with his short, simple, declarative writing style.
His years in Paris during the 1920s were his “apprenticeship,” when he made the transition from newspaper writer to bona fide fiction writer and from an unknown to a celebrity.

This is the story of some of Hemingway’s most important years.
