National Endowment for the Humanities awards grant for ongoing publication of Nobel laureate’s complete correspondence
Completed in 1956 and set in the Ritz hotel in Paris after Allied forces have liberated the city, Hemingway’s WWII story “A Room on the Garden Side” was published in The Strand Magazine. Kirk Curnutt provides an afterword, describing how “the story implicitly wonders whether the heritage of Parisian culture can recover from the dark taint of fascism.”
