Favorite Book: "Bull-Fighter From Brooklyn: The Amazing Autobiography of Sidney Franklin " by Sidney Franklin

"My favorite book? Easy. "Bullfighter From Brooklyn". I lived in Spain with a beautiful woman of French/Spanish heritage--a Catalan--when I read this book. It's about Sidney Franklin, a Jewish man, who becomes a bullfighter. It was interesting to me that Hemingway in his book, "Death in the Afternoon" mentions Franklin, and Franklin mentions Hemingway in his autobiography. I was intrigued by the connection--and I loved bullfighting."
