"Hemingway and James Joyce were drinking buddies in Paris. Joyce was thin and bespectacled; Hemingway was tall and strapping. When they went out Joyce would get drunk, pick a fight with a bigger guy in the bar and then hide behind Hemingway and yell, “Deal with him, Hemingway. Deal with him.”"-
Between this and the story about him reassuring F. Scott Fitzgerald re dick size, I’m developing a picture of Hemingway as the mother hen of the disaffected white male literary set of the early 20th century.
He probably called up Steinbeck sometimes and was like I CAN’T EVEN WITH THESE DIPSHITS and Steinbeck was all “That’s what you get for living in Paris, asshole”.

"For all his adult life, Hemingway was in love with and expert at the economic art of cable-ese."-
Paul Hendrickson in Hemingway’s Boat.
Hemingway’s skill at conveying as much information as possible in as few a words as possible (as needed in telegrams) stemmed back to 1922, when his role of Staff Reporter for the Toronto Star had required him to report on the Greco-Turkish war from Constantinople. Malcolm Cowley wrote that, for Hemingway, this was “an exercise in omitting everything that can be taken for granted” and offers a explanation for his writing style.
