Nobody Has to Fight Past Anything to Read Them

Ursula K. Le Guin

In a book about Ernest Hemingway’s boat called Hemingway’s Boat, Paul Hendricks laments how badly Hemingway’s writing has been neglected and how people who call him macho just don’t understand. To appreciate Hemingway, Hendricks says, “You just have to fight past the misconceptions and stereotypes.”
