Where should I start with Hemingway?
Is this the edition to read?
Also what should I read prior to it if anything.
What does /lit/ think of this glorious bastard? And also similar authors

Help me, /lit/
How do you deal with people who are not into literature or art in general, going so far as to disregard both? In daily life you can just ignore it, but how shall one establish emotional closeness to someone who neither cares about nor understands something which has become such a great part of my personality? I want to love her, /lit/, but what am I supposed to love if she only reads stuff that is worse than genre fiction and lacks any redeeming features? Maybe I am too elitist, but it is not the lack of taste which disturbs me but rather the fact that I consider...

If you like her you like her. It's not like you're some kind of aesthetic genius. That art has become the greater part of one's personality is something we all would like to believe, though it's really just horseshit.
You're not elitist, just some kid.

Bad protagonists thread?
I've been wanting to write a novel that's story is based on Germany after WW1 (Hyperinflation, Hitler's uprising, ect) though I'm stumped on what the general context would be.

Hey /lit/, I need your advise.
I want to make a present for a friend, and I was thinking about a book.
The thing is, the friend of mine went through a painful break up some time ago, and he seems to be struggling to close that wound, and I wanted to give him a book that coud help him to deal with his feelings.
My friend is not really a bookworm, he doesnt read a lot, and I thought it could be a good opportunity to try to make him read more, so a light book would be better.

How does one establish that characters care about each other without everyone assuming it's sexual? Or is that simply not possible in this day and age?
By the person being abundant enough, then doing a favor and not expecting sex in return.
What are their characters? You might be able to make the reader predict or at least understand their actions.
Were you this deprived of regular human contact in your life that you can't think of how people can care for each other without it being sexual? I don't know if writing is the best hobby for you.
What are the prerequisites for this, /lit/? No meme answers please. Keep it to less than 10 books or ~5000 pages overall.
What is /lit/'s opinion on Rousseau? More specifically, The Social Contract?
He traces all royalty back to Adam forgetting that all plebs are categorically descended from Adam. Pretending the Book of Genesis isn't poetic horseshit, for a moment, lime most ecclesiastic doggerel it doesn't pass its own logic.
Where do I start with him?
I just finished Ride the Tiger, it changed my way of thinking in ways i couldnt foresee.
How do you deal with the empty materialism of the Kali Yuga?
