What Peace Corps Volunteer (before he was a PCV) met Hemingway in Spain when Ernie was writing The Dangerous Summer, the story of the rivalry of two great bullfighters–Luis-Miguel Dominguin and Antonio Ordonez?
That summer in Spain this young man approached Hemingway at one of the writer’s lengthy luncheon and asked him how to ‘become’ a writer. There is actually a photograph of the encounter, (it appeared, I think, in the old LIFE magazine) taken from a second-story balcony. It is a photo looking down on Hemingway at a long table of friends of the writer, and the young guy who would, in a few years, become a Peace Corps Volunteer. Who is this PCV?
1) He was a PCV in the 1960s;
2) A PCV in Latin America;
3) He later became a magazine writer;
4) He has a brother who was a PCV and CD for the Peace Corps;
5) He wrote a wonderful book about his father.
6) Hemingway wrote about him in an article about that summer.
If you get his name right, I’ll buy you a beer in DC at the 50th Reunion!
[His brother is not allowed to give the name!]
