Dos and Hem

Quite sure this the last time my grandfather wrote Hemingway. It’s noted in Virginia Spencer Carr’s biography of Dos Passos, which is really worth a close read. “In the spring of 1961 when Dos Passos read that Hemingway had almost walked into the spinning blades of an airplane propeller, he dropped him a note, saying ‘Hem, hope this isn’t getting to be a habit. Take it easy there. Best of luck. Dos.'”
