Paris Years

After returning from World War I, Hemingway worked for awhile as a reporter for the Toronto StarHemimgway's passport photo and later as a writer for a magazine put out by the Chicago-based Cooperative Society of America. Two new acquaintances made in the fall of 1920, however, led to a radical shift in direction. One of the fomenters of change was a young woman named Hadley Richardson; the other was writer Sherwood Anderson. While his relationship with Hadley led to marriage, Anderson was the one who convinced him that the best place to start pursuing his ambition to write fiction was Paris. So it was that in the fall of 1921 Hemingway was preparing to sail to France with his new wife.
