Quotes About Reading Hemingway

By the time I got to high school, I had learned to be more cautious about revealing my dreams. I was reading-and therefore writing-adventure stories. This was before I'd read Isak Dinesen and Mikhail Bulgakov, before Ernest Hemingway and T. Coraghessan Boyle, before I'd read something and really felt it, when writing was still just a compulsion, and my teen-age brain was only bordering on sentience. I filled pages of white space with swashbuckling, rapier-wielding, sidekick-sacrificing, dragon-baiting romance.
(from 'High-School Confidential' in the The New Yorker.)

— Téa Obreht

— Joan Didion
