Today, July 21, is Ernest Hemingway’s birthday. To celebrate, here are a three things you may not have known about him:

He (supposedly) invented the cocktail Death in the Afternoon. In a collection of celebrity recipes he instructed readers to “Pour one jigger absinthe into a Champagne glass. Add iced Champagne until it attains the proper opalescent milkiness. Drink three to five of these slowly.” (He also shared the recipe for his favorite hamburger.)
He rewrote the ending the A Farewell To Arms 39 times before he was satisfied.
He named his fishing boat Pilar.
HBD, Ernie!

In 1985, fascinated by stories of women working in mines in Appalachia, Bertien van Manen embedded herself with families in the region. What emerged was an epic, intergenerational photography project spanning nearly 30 years.

"[…] a girl in an alcoholic family has a powerful incentive to placate, comfort and nurture her disorderly parent/s; and on the other, she senses a completely normal and natural desire to have her own emotional and physical needs taken care of. Such a situation is bound to create tremendous inner conflict […] Too often, she solves the problem by avoiding the choice altogether, by denying her desires and deadening her feelings generally. She becomes a giver, but the giving is hardly selfless. It is a way of quieting her own unvoiced desires."
