Description

Print edition. This book contains 250 anecdotes about books, authors, and publishing, including this one: Famed portrait photographer Yousuf Karsh did research on his subjects before taking their photograph. For example, the evening before taking the photograph of author Ernest Hemingway, Mr. Karsh visited Mr. Hemingway's favorite bar, La Floridita, and sampled Mr. Hemingway's favorite drink, a daiquiri. The next morning, Mr. Karsh arrived at Mr. Hemingway's home to take his photograph, and when Mr. Hemingway asked him what he wanted to drink, Mr. Karsh thought that he had the perfect answer: "Daiquiri, sir." Unfortunately, Mr. Hemingway responded, "Good God, Karsh-at this hour of the day!"
