Ken Trainor’s column, “Getting to Know Hemingway” [Viewpoints, April 14] is beautifully written and very insightful on the Oak Park native, and yet so sad. Perhaps the overarching message of his writing (as explained in Ken’s column) is just too stark a truth; hence, the perception that many local residents are dismissive of his writing.
