Hemingway on Toronto (to Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas): "What bothers me is why with my fine intelligence I ever came out here."

Trying to locate the above quote also took me to "Toronto Quotes" on Brainyquote.com, which includes such nuggets as this:

"I am in Toronto, shooting a movie for NBC."
- Paula Abdul

(That's like the "Hi...we're in Delaware" of my city.)

Is there an easy way to ebook this?

Mod note: Folks maybe if you don't mean to derail, wait until the thread has progressed a little before making your derailing comments?

Hemingway kinda self-derailed in himself. His whole ethos is a perfectly fake celebration of macho bullshit, which he himself knows is hollow in the core...

hippybear! I worked on that movie! Watching it right now with gingerbeer and rtha. As a friend said during the filming: I got to throw rubble on Nicole Kidman's boobs--it was a good day.

I just found out yesterday that the JFK Library has a large collection of Hemingway papers, from Cuba and elsewhere.

Thanks, I love Hemingway, and this should be interesting to dig through.
