AUTHOR OF THE DAY:  Ernest Hemingway
Ernest Hemingway is one of the most famous American authors of the 20th century. He was born on July 21, 1899 in Oak Park Illinois. During his high school years, Hemingway wrote for his school newspaper, Trapeze and Tabula, as a sports writers. After graduation, he skipped college, and began to work for the Kansas City Star. He recalls, "On the Star you were forced to learn to write a simple declarative sentence. This is useful to anyone. Newspaper work will not harm a young writer and could help him if he gets out of it in time." Later on this skill tremendously influenced his seamlessly, straight-forward prose. 
After the United States entered World War I, Hemingway joined as an ambulance driver in the Italian Army. Hemingway then returned to the United States injured at the young age of 20 and landed at job at the Toronto Star in Michigan. He, then, met Hadley Richardson, his first wife. The couple moved to Paris, where he wrote his first novel, The Sun Also Rises. During the twenties, he was in the company of T.S. Eliot, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Gertude Stein to name a few. Genuinely impressed by him, Fitzgerald brought Hemingway’s manuscript, The Sun Also Rises to his publisher. If it had not been for Fitzgerald, Hemingway might have not been a household name now. 
In 1954, Ernest Hemingway won the Nobel Prize in Literature. Although he was at the peak of his career his personal life was taking a hit. He suffered from depression, high blood pressure and liver disease. He permanently retired in Idaho and died on July 2, 1961 after committing suicide.
