A bittersweet homage to love that overpowers reason, to the resilience of the human spirit, and to the...read more

    Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961) was one of the most influential writers of all time. The American author, a newspaper journalist in his twenties, crafted a unique, terse style later emulated by many writers. He called this the 'Iceberg Theory' because much of any given story exists below the surface. Hemingway's adventurous lifestyle and larger-than-life persona brought admiration from future generations. Frank Marcopolos (1972-) founded 'The Whirligig' literary magazine in 1999, which has been called 'a landmark, demonstrating the power of the literary underground.' One reviewer said that 'you get this true lion-roaring sense that Editor Frank Marcopolos knows what he likes, and how to...read more
