I have not yet had the pleasure of meeting University of Miami (OH) Professor Donald Daiker but hopefully one day I will – who knows maybe I can get back to Paris (in 2014) and meet him at one of the Hemingway conferences. I had requested some information on Ernest Hemingway last month and he ended up sending me a bunch of reading material on Hemingway and I wanted to say thank you!
I will especially look forward to reading the 2007 Hemingway Review and his article on Jake Barnes and The Sun Also Rises in that particular issue as well as the 2009 issue that looks at Lady Ashley and Pedro Romero. Finally, in the book Modern American Fiction, I look forward to reading “The Affirmative Conclusion of The Sun Also Rises and once again read Professor Daiker’s viewpoint.
Sometimes an unexpected surprise just makes your day especially if it involves Hemingway material and the kindness of others!
