Ernest Hemingway's Biography

Ernest Hemingway was a Nobel Prize-winning American novelist and journalist, and one of the most influential writers of the 20th century. He’s known for his terse, understated prose, often writing about World War I and the “Lost Generation” that survived it.

Hemingway served as an ambulance driver in Italy in WWI, during which time he was severely wounded by mortar fire (the experience would serve as the foundation of his novel A Farewell to Arms). He spent much of the following decades as an expatriate, primarily in Paris, Key West, and Cuba. He was present as a journalist during the Spanish Civil War, as well as at the Normandy landings and liberation of Paris in WWII (he even led a band of French resistance fighters, which, as a correspondent, was a violation of the Geneva Convention). He committed suicide on July 2, 1961.

During his life, Hemingway was a prodigious drinker, and invented a number of legendary cocktails. The Hemingway Daiquiri, for instance, is a variation on the classic Daiquiri that he concocted himself, as well as the Death in the Afternoon, a combination of absinthe and champagne that he named for one of his books.
