Hemingway, fictionalized by himself

David Bourne, Hemingway’s avatar in The Garden of Eden:

He started to write and he forgot about Catherine and what he saw from the window and the writing went by itself as it did with him when he was lucky. He wrote it exactly and the sinister part only showed as the light feathering of a smooth swell on a calm day marking the reef beneath.

From The Garden of Eden, by Ernest Hemingway, published posthumously in 1986.
