Hello-I'm looking for the book by Hemingway that he describes what a biologist is. I remember reading it in high school but forgot the book name. Thank you.

I absolutely, positively guarentee that Hemingway never wrote a book in which he describes a biologist. But there is this from Carlos Baker's book The Writer As Artist...

"Hemingway as an apprentice craftsman was temporarily prepared to accept them [limitations on depth and scope]. He began, as he knew he must, by centering attention on action, and on what he felt to be the simpler modes of action. "I was trying to learn to write, comencing with the simplest things," he said in 1932, speaking of his program in 1932. As in the laboratory study of biology, one works up only very gradually to more complex organisms. If he were to begin on the human instead of the frog. the young biologist's ignorance might betray him into the most unscientific (which is to say, untrue) conceptions, and he would have the further hazard of getting lost amongthe ganglia.
