Book beginnings on Friday

 

1926

Today’s book beginning is from a book I read some weeks ago, “The sun also rises” by Ernest Hemingway. If you would like to see more covers, please have a look at the Comparing Covers post from a few days ago.

Robert Cohn was once middleweight boxing champion of Princeton. Do not think I am very much impressed by that as a boxing title, but it meant a lot to Cohn. He cared nothing for boxing, in fact he disliked it, but he learned it painfully and thoroughly to counteract the feeling of inferiority and shyness he had felt on being treated as a Jew at Princeton.

  1. That is attention-grabbing…I haven’t read Ernest Hemingway in a long while, but I did receive A Moveable Feast in the mail this past week.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.
