I’ve always been fond of Hemingway, blame it on Gary Cooper and Ingrid Bergman. Hemingway the lover of Spain, the journalist-turned-novelist, that is… I dislike the bullfighting and other macho behaviour. His ability to frame a quotation is legendary, my favourite is:-
“All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know.”
If it were only that simple.

Read the first paragraphs of The Old Man and the Sea and To Have and Have Not.
