Ernest Hemingway Quotes About Alcoholism

Ernest Hemingway Quotes about Alcoholism

Ernest Hemingway was one of the greatest writers and he lived a fascinating life full of troubles, accidents, depression, alcoholic binges, and failed relationships. If your an alcoholic or just want to read about a brilliant yet troubled man, I would strongly suggest checking out this Ernest Hemingway Biography! Alcoholism can strike the young, the old, the brilliant, the troubled,  the rich, and the poor. I picked up this book, only knowing a few details about Ernest Hemingway. I heard stories that he was a heavy drinker, gambled too much, loved cats, and was a great writer. That's about all I knew, but that was enough for me to open up this book and read about a brilliant writer who shared some of the same issues as I do. It was very compelling, and hard to put down.. 5 stars on a 5 star scale for me!!
