Old School Esquire















Have obtained a copy of the Oct. 1970 issue of Esquire, with Hemingway’s “Bimini” from Islands in the Stream, and Richard Brautigan’s “Lost Chapters of Trout Fishing in America.” This is a Gordon Lish-era issue; the Hemingway excerpt is the basis of an essay I wrote that will be in this year’s number of The Hemingway Review.

What’s cool is that it is over-sized, printed on thick slick paper, with ads for 8 Track tape memberships, a photo spread of Johnny Carson in his late 1960s suits, an eassy about Robert Redford…

I was 5 years old when this issue came out.
