Ernest Hemingway (1899 – 1961) was an American novelist, short story writer, and journalist. His economical and understated style had a strong influence on 20th-century fiction, while his life of adventure and his public image influenced later generations. Many of his works are considered classics of American literature.
Kiki's French autobiography was first published in 1929 as Kiki's Memoirs, with Hemingway and T. Foujita providing introductions. In 1930, the book was translated and published in the U.S. by Black Manikin Press, but it was immediately censored and banned.
