About the Hemingway List
1934... an aspiring writer asks Ernest Hemingway what books he should read to become a great author. Hemingway writes him a list of must-reads for the budding literary god (14 novels and 2 short stories).
Today... we are reading our way through this list, one chapter per day, and discussing the day's chapter (via our subreddit), to create a daily podcast.
Well, because this is the path to literary greatness - as ascribed by Hemingway himself.
Listener - Want to reach god-tier literary genius status without all that pesky reading? Subscribe to the podcast and listen along for the ride.
