Publisher Description

A collection of reflections on writing and the nature of the writer from one the greatest American writers of the 20th century.

Throughout Hemingway’s career as a writer, he maintained that it was bad luck to talk about writing—that it takes off “whatever butterflies have on their wings and the arrangement of hawk’s feathers if you show it or talk about it.”

Despite this belief, by the end of his life he had done just what he intended not to do. In his novels and stories, in letters to editors, friends, fellow artists, and critics, in interviews and in commissioned articles on the subject, Hemingway wrote often about writing. And he wrote as well and as incisively about the subject as any writer who ever lived…

This book contains Hemingway’s reflections on the nature of the writer and on elements of the writer’s life, including specific and helpful advice to writers on the craft of writing, work habits, and discipline. The Hemingway personality comes through in general wisdom, wit, humor, and insight, and in his insistence on the integrity of the writer and of the profession itself.

Wonderful collection of Hemingway's Thoughts on Writing

I've read this twice now and will no doubt read it again. An articulate and fascinating glimpse into an American master's process. Inspiring and worthwhile.

Hemingway on writing

Don't waste your money! This is not even a book. Blurry graphics, lots of blank pages and a few skimpy quotes. I can't believe I wasted $12 on this piece of junk! It has no redeeming value whatsoever. Zero stars.
