Personal Quote:

If the book is good, is about something that you know, and is truly written, and reading it over you see that this is so, you can let the boys yip and the noise will have that pleasant sound coyotes make on a very cold night when they are out in the snow and you are in your own cabin that you have built or paid for with your work.

Hemingway was a lover of cats, specifically polydactyl (cats with more toes than usual). His first polydactyl cat, Snowball, has nearly fifty descendants still living at the Hemingway Home in Key West, Florida. See more »
