“Hemingway on Fishing”
By Ernest Hemingway

Art Keup was recently named chief financial officer at Luther Manor, an independent living, assisted living and skilled nursing facility in Wauwatosa.

For Christmas, his wife gave him a new book he’s enjoyed reading and would recommend to other executives.

“The book on my nightstand right now is Hemingway on Fishing, a collection of short stories and magazine articles that he wrote about fishing in various countries,” Keup said.

The book delves into the esteemed author’s love of fishing and his writings on everything from trout fishing in Michigan to marlin fishing in the Gulf Stream. It even includes passages on fishing from his popular books “The Sun Also Rises” and “Old Man and the Sea.”

“The short stories and excerpts in ‘Hemingway on Fishing’ cover his trips in northern Michigan as well as the Florida keys, Cuba and Europe, from about 1919 through the 1940s. I’ve learned a bit about how people traveled and fished in pre-WWII Europe,” Keup said.
