Acclaimed for his lean, succinct prose, Write Like Hemingway connects the dots between Ernest Hemingway’s earliest writing job and his most memorable fiction.

Following the paper’s style guide, with rules like “Use short sentences,” and approximately 100 more similarly exacting ones, Hemingway learned how to write, and carried these lessons of narrative economy with him for the rest of his life.

The Little Book of Zingers
You know Mark Twain, creator of the long-beloved characters Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer, but have you heard what he said about Jane Austen? The Little Book of Zingers will feature the greatest comebacks and one-liners of all time, uttered by the iconic men and women we know and love (or love to hate)!
Every generation sees its fair share of geniuses: men and women who possess boundless intellect and are capable of incredible insight. Søren Kierkegaard was such a man. Widely considered the father of existential philosophy, Kierkegaard uttered such profundities as: “If I am capable of grasping God objectively, I do not believe, but precisely because I cannot do this I must believe.” But on one truly momentous occasion, Kierkegaard made one confident and succinct statement that shook the earth: “My opponent is a glob of snot.” Kierkegaard spoke of Hans Martensen, an academic with whom he’d had a fair share of disagreements. The two often went toe-to-toe in scholarly debate, but with this dynamite zinger, Kierkegaard ended all further discussion. After all, who expects to be called a glob of snot? There’s no coming back from that. The Little Book of Zingers will explore the rich depths of crushingly hilarious salt-in-the-wound one-liners you’ve never heard that’ll make you gasp at their audacity. From the Age of Enlightenment to the Roaring Twenties to the boogie-down seventies, The Little Book of Zingers will take readers on a journey through some of history’s greatest burns, spoken by the men and women who shaped the world.
