Toronto Star Publishes Digital Archive Of Ernest Hemingway Columns: Young 'Papa' Wrote Of Bootleggers & Bullfighters

Alexander Nazaryan at the New York Post writes about a new digital archive of young Ernest Hemingway's writings at the Toronto Star.

In a handsome new website called The Hemingway Papers, the Toronto Star has collected the columns that Ernest Hemingway wrote for that newspaper. In doing so, it sheds much-needed light on a little-known aspect of the great writer's career, and does so in a sleek, inviting and easy-to-navigate format.

As the Star's editor-in-chief Michael Cooke writes in a note to readers:

"Unbelievably, there was a time when the Toronto Star thought Ernest Hemingway “too big for his britches.”

Hemingway had arrived at the paper to freelance at age 20, became its European correspondent at 22 and returned to local staff at 24.

He'd already traveled the world. Seen a thing or two.

Note: Thanks to all of you who wrote and asked about my lack of posting this past week. I was laid up due to my spine and nerve damage since last Sunday. I'm feeling better today.
