More About This Title Biographic: Hemingway
Most people know that Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961) was a towering figure of American literature, a Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winner and author of novels including The Sun Also Rises and The Old Man and the Sea. What, perhaps, they don’t know is that he was an ambulance driver in the World War I and suffered 227 shrapnel wounds; that he wrote 47 different endings to A Farewell to Arms; that he hunted great white sharks and German U-boats with a machine gun; and that he survived two plane crashes in 48 hours. Biographic: Hemingway presents an instant impression of his life, work and legacy, with an array of irresistible facts and figures converted into infographics to reveal the writer behind the words.
