Hemingway & Fitzgerald, 1925 - In the 1920s, F. Scott Fitzgerald & Ernest Hemingway became good friends, despite their frequently conflicting worldviews & lifestyle choices. Only 3 years apart, their literary careers paralleled one another & both authors reached worldwide acclaim by the time they were 30.
There has been speculation on Ernest Hemingway being gay. Truman Capote called Ernest Hemingway the greatest old closet queen ever to come down the pike; F. Scott Fitzgerald's wife, Zelda Fitzgerald, said that Hemingway and Scott Fitzgerald behaved like lovers; during Hemingway’s life, rumors persisted of a night when Hemingway made advances on Robert McAlmon (McAlmon claimed Hemingway treated him like he was the buxom, tough, and beautiful tart of the cabaret (P: Hemingway & Fitzgerald)

Margaret Mitchell reading a copy of her novel "Gone with the Wind". Random thought/hypothetical question- After your book gets published, would you want to read it again? If so, how often would you re-read it? I suppose it would be akin to what an actor or actress feels when he or she watches themselves in a movie or tv show.
Margaret Mitchell reading a copy of her novel "Gone with the Wind". Finished this one night after midnight when I was a young teenager. I was on the sofa in the living room - should have been sleeping - and started crying when I finished it - Scarlett was so stupid and Rhett was so tired of her! Guess I woke Mom up - she sent me to bed - she couldn't believe what I was crying about!

7 Little-Known Lord of the Rings Facts: The editors made many well-intentioned corrections that actually ruined what Tolkien had tried to write. Instead of Tolkien’s “elven” they would correct it to “elfin” or “dwarves” to “dwarfs.” Tolkien’s invented language was continuously “corrected,” something he constantly fought to get reverted back to his original writing.
J. R. R. Tolkien English writer, poet, philologist, and university professor, best known as the author of the classic high fantasy works The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion. He is one of my all time favorite authors. Amazing man and writer.

Actually, Mt. Doom has other names. It's called Orodruin in Sindarin. Orodruin translates to "Mountain of Doom". Also the Elvish name for Mt. Doom is Amon Amarth translating to "fire mountain." At least according to this Lord of the Rings guide book I have.

Interesting Facts About Lewis Carroll...Alice Liddell is well known to have been the inspiration behind Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, but what is less well known is that she wasn’t the girl who inspired the Alice in the follow-up book, Through the Looking-Glass: the ‘Alice’ in that book’s subtitle, And What Alice Found There, refers to Carroll’s five year-old cousin, Alice Theodora Raikes. The reason for this was that, by the time he wrote the sequel to the first Alice book, Carroll was no longer on speaking terms with the Liddell family.
