Unpublished Hemingway story will be released in Harper's Magazine(Read article summary)
The work, titled 'My Life in the Bull Ring with David Ogden Stewart,' will be published in Harper's Magazine.
A previously unpublished story by Ernest Hemingway will be released in the October issue of Harperâ€™s Magazine.
The story, titled â€śMy Life in the Bull Ring with David Ogden Stewart,â€ť is believed to have been written in 1924 and was found in letters of Stewartâ€™s. The text is reportedly based on a bull fight in which Stewart participated.
Apparently Stewart wasnâ€™t impressed by the story at first â€“ according to NPR, he wrote in his autobiography, â€śWhen [Hemingway] had sent me a 'funny' piece about myself to submit to Vanity Fair, I had decided that written humor was not his dish and had done nothing about it.â€ť However, one way or another it ended up at Vanity Fair, but the magazine rejected it.
When the magazine heard about the discovered story, staff asked if they could publish â€śBull Ring,â€ť but Hemingwayâ€™s estate went with Harperâ€™s instead.
Other works by the author published after his death include the novels â€śThe Garden of Edenâ€ť and â€śIslands in the Streamâ€ť as well as the work â€śTrue at First Light,â€ť which combines fiction with elements of memoir.
Hemingway won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1953 for his novel â€śThe Old Man and the Seaâ€ť and secured the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954. He is also remembered for his works â€śFor Whom the Bell Tolls,â€ť â€śThe Sun Also Rises,â€ť which was his first novel, and â€śA Farewell to Arms.â€ť
