The AJ Quiz: Who Wrote It, Krakauer or Hemingway?

krakauer or hemingwayAuthors Jon Krakauer and Ernest Hemingway aren’t often compared, but they’re both famous for their writing on adventure, travel, life, and death—in different eras. Hemingway was more deep-sea fishing, bullfighting, and hunting, and Krakauer was (in his first three books) more mountaineering, ice, and rock climbing. Despite their vastly differing bodies of work, we think you might not be able to tell their writing apart, if given only a small sample that doesn’t give away the location, period of time, characters, or whether it’s fiction or nonfiction.

Each one of these quotes is from a book written by Jon Krakauer or Ernest Hemingway. You guess which is which.
