Brilliant photographer and proprietor of WhereIWrite.org Kyle Cassidy e-mailed me in response to the writer who left his short stories somewhere:
"it was Ernest Hemingway -- his first wife, Hadly, famously left the only copy of all of his short stories on a train in france. it's the literary holy grail."
It sure is - If I could find that, I could make big bucks. But should I sell the manuscript, or just retype it and pretend it's my own? I guess people would be suspicious if all of a sudden I was writing about bullfighting and people were calling me "Papa."
By the way, is that why he divorced "Hadly"?
Anyway, check Kyle's work out at his great blog, http://kylecassidy.livejournal.com/.
