From the Paper:

"Hemingway was born in 1899 and grew up in the Greater Chicago area. After high school, he worked as a news journalist for a time, but quickly joined the ambulance driver corps. He was sent to Italy and was wounded during a battle in 1918, so he was sent back home. During his later life, he lived in Key West, Florida, as well as Cuba, and later Idaho. Depression ran in his family, his father having committed suicide early in Hemingway's life, and in 1961 Ernest Hemingway killed himself in his Idaho home.
"A Clean and Well Lighted Place is a story about a man whose story strongly resembles that of Job in the bible. Everything has gone wrong in his life, and seemingly he has lost everything. Unlike Job, however, the man gives up. Though he fails in his attempts at suicide, he resigns to a life of sadness and drinking. The story also involves commentary from the waiters where the old man prefers to drink.
"Fifty Grand is another iconic Hemingway story. Fifty Grand discusses a down-and-out boxer, who ends up betting against himself for the sake of having some money. The boxer throws the fight, purposefully losing, so that he may collect the $50,000 bet he made against himself. He did this to the dismay of many who bet on him, as well as his team, who was rooting for him. "
