Portrait of Hemingway by Lillian Ross( Book )

20 editions published between 1961 and 2015 in English and Japanese and held by 1,285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The definitive sketch of one of America's greatest writers. On May 13, 1950, Lillian Ross's first portrait of Ernest Hemingway was published in The New Yorker. It was an account of two days Hemingway spent in New York in 1949 on his way from Havana to Europe. This candid and affectionate profile was tremendously controversial at the time, to the great surprise of its author. Booklist said, "The piece immediately conveys to the reader the kind of man Hemingway was--hard-hitting, warm, and exuberantly alive."

In the spring of 1950, when New Yorker staff writer Lillian Ross heard that John Huston was planning to make a film of Stephen Crane's The Red Badge of Courage, she decided she would follow the movies progress "in order to learn whatever I might about the American motion-picture industry." The result was the classic book Picture. Picture received raves from the worlds of film and literature in equal measure for its unforgettable portrait of the language, the mores, and the preoccupations of Hollywood. Charlie Chaplin called the book "brilliant and sagacious" and legendary editor Wallace Shawn hailed it as "the definitive book on the Hollywood community." Little wonder that, when the Top 100 Works of U.S. Journalism of the Twentieth Century were chosen by a panel that included David Brinkley, Pete Hamill, Jeff Greenfield, Mary McGrory, and Morley Safer, 'Picture' had an honored place on that list
