Down in Havana, Searching for the Ghost of Hemingway

Posted by on Jul 12, 2016

 

Hemingway’s influence on the stuff you read at high school, resentfully, willingly or everything in between, is massive.  It was also well known that he wasn’t the greatest guy to be around.  Esquire tries to find the human behind the cliche, and looks for it in Havana, where Hemingway was known to smoke a few cigars.

What’s going to happen to Cuba now that the embargo is about to lift? The man takes a stab at being a U. S. statesman in a foreign country. “Well, I think it’s about to change,” he tries ponderously, with professional noncommitment. Then he can’t stop himself, looking up with that smile borrowed from the Joker. “I just wanted to get here before the Chipotle.”

The article from Esquire is a good long read.  Click on the Via link below to read the rest of the article.
