Hemingway writing in 1939 (Public domain)

There is an urban legend that tells a tale of Ernest Hemingway at the height of his powers. The legend goes that Hemingway was drinking and hanging out with a cadre of fellow writers in the 1920s. At the time, he would have been living in Paris likely smoking and collaborating with fellow ex-pats.
