From Ernest Hemingway's home in Key West, Florida, the guests talked about his life and writings, and how the history of the 1920s and 1930s was characterized in his novels and short stories, with emphasis on The Sun Also Rises. The program featured several archival photographs of Hemingway over the years as well as previously recorded footage of P.J. O'Rourke talking about Hemingway's influence. Born in 1899 in Oak Park, Illinois, Ernest Hemingway became a reporter for the Kansas City Star in 1917. In 1918, he was wounded while serving as an ambulance driver in Italy during WWI. In 1920, he became a reporter for the Toronto Star and in 1921 was sent to Paris for that paper. While there, he began interacting with a sizeable population of American writers and other artists who were known as a group as the American Expatriates. During the 1920s in Paris, his fiction writing began to be noticed and in 1926 his groundbreaking novel, The Sun Also Rises, was published, bringing Hemingway success and celebrity. In 1928 he left Europe and moved to Key West, where he and his second wife, Pauline, bought a house which he was to own for the remainder of his life.
