Hemingway in New York, annotated

Lillian Ross answers some questions about her 1950 New Yorker profile of the man who, she wrote, "may well be the greatest living American writer." Her interrogator, Nieman Storyboard's Elon Green, sets the stage: "Even in a magazine known for the Profile — the magazine that, in fact, has been credited with creating the concept, as an art form — this one stood out … Hemingway loved the profile, and he and Ross remained friends until his death, in 1961."
