ERNEST HEMINGWAY ON WRITING is a short, easy-breezy kind of read, but it's not very substantial either. Considering the level of privacy the man tried to maintain, I highly doubt he would have liked his personal letters amassed and scoured for traces of advice, whether decent tips were among them or not. That irks me a little bit, regardless of what the preface tries to say to the contrary. Still, I read it rather quickly, but not much was to be gained. As a reader and a writer, the working habits section is full of the best guidelines on how to get that story down on paper, but for the most part, the other sections dwell too long on his thoughts regarding other people, other people's work, other people's politics, and how much he doesn't think much about other people. It is all rather tepid at best and, unfortunately, I wouldn't recommend it.
