Ernest Hemingway´s literary ambitions took root in France in the 1920s among some of the most extravagantly creative artists of the twentieth century. Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, James Joyce, T. S. Eliot, Gertrude Stein, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ezra Pound, Cole Porter, Sergey Diaghilev, and others were drawn to the left bank of the Seine in Paris after World War I. Hemingway joined them and, with the publication of his book The Sun Also Rises, which epitomized Paris during the jazz era, became one of the most powerful forces in the vortex of talent and experimentation. Author Winston Conrad writes, ´´This book is my attempt to illustrate Hemingway´s attachment to France and its City of Light, to connect us with the magic and romance that inspired him to write wonderful stories and great books.´´ 1.
