You Should Know: Lesley M. M. Blume

by Christie Grimm · March 14, 2016

Perhaps you're an aspiring writer in need of a dreamy, life inspiring figure to look upon. A literate Gwyneth Paltrow if you will. Look no further than Lesley M. M. Blume. A critically acclaimed author of countless articles, books and more, her singular style shows itself most recently in her oh so intriguingly titled project, "Everyone Behaves Badly: The True Story Behind Hemingway's Masterpiece, The Sun Also Rises." Her first go into the world of biography, we're sure she did the literary legend justice. After all, just look at that Panama hat and those chunky, island-esque accessories. Ernest totally would have dug her.
