Legendary American authors Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald loved and hated each other from the moment they met in 1925 at the Dingo Bar in Paris. Fitzgerald proved to be the more generous friend but Hemingway the more successful writer, in part thanks to Fitzgerald’s help. Both rejected the “lost generation” tag, but both helped to create, perpetuate, glamorize, and even live it.
