From Ernest Hemingway’s home in Key West, Florida, the guests talked about his life and writings, and how the history of the 1920s and 1930s was characterized in his novels and short stories, with emphasis on The Sun Also Rises. The program featured several archival photographs of Hemingway over the years as well as previously recorded footage of P.J. O’Rourke talking about Hemingway’s influence.

In 1918, he was wounded while serving in Italy during WWI. In 1920, he became a reporter for the Toronto Star and in 1921 was sent to Paris for that paper. While there, he began interacting with the population of American writers and other artists who were known as the American Expatriates. During the 1920s in Paris, his fiction writing began to be noticed and in 1926 his groundbreaking novel, The Sun Also Rises, was published, bringing Hemingway success and celebrity. close
