Home Libraries: Ernest Hemingway

by Anna Blanch on May 3, 2013

Ernest Hemingway lived in this house in Key West, Florida for more than 10 years. This is where he wrote For Whom the Bell Tolls and Death in the Afternoon. Needing a place where he could drink a glass of scotch, smoke a cigar, and write, Hemingway turned the old carriage house on the property into his personal writing studio. The main features in the room are the Cuban cigar-maker’s chair and his Royal typewriter. Throughout the room, Hemingway placed mementos he collected from his adventures in Africa and Cuba.

I think my favourite parts are the sconces, the easel, and the massive impala head!
