As I've mentioned before, I am obsessed with Ernest Hemingway. I am reading The Sun Also Rises right now...his prose is so clean, his wit and sarcasm perfectly placed- am loving his description of the running of the bulls in Pamplona....p.164, "Suddenly a crowd came down the street. They were all running, packed close together. They passed along and up the street toward the bull-ring and behind them came more men running faster, and then some stragglers who were really running." Can't you just see that? The last line is so funny! Many thanks, Mr. Hemingway.
