_islands in the stream_ seemed to be more like a "normal" novel, rather than the different, specialized style that hemingway was famous for. i liked it. cool story. some great action, like where the shark goes for one of his boys, or the fight on the dock. i didn't know there was a movie of the book. i'll hafta check it out.

did you know they did a two-part tv movie on hemingway's?

_a movable feast_ is a wicked autobiographical work, isn't it? lots of naughty gossip about many artists and writers who were hanging in paris in the 20's.
