My view as we start in on the Ambulance Drivers, about the friendship that developed between Hemingway and Dos Passos following their stints driving ambulances in World War II. It’s an incredibly well researched, very readable work by New York Times’ bestseller James McGrath Morris that follows their early struggles defining their writing styles to represent a new generation, and how their experiences, both at war and in their personal lives, informed what they did. An interesting historic read for anyone really, assuming they do read, but interesting in particular for artists. They failed and failed again but kept working until they succeeded.
