Hunter S. Thompson was a babe. (ed. note: Anne Sexton and Sylvia Plath were also pretty fly.) Virginia Woolf was rather modest. Ernest Hemingway and Tennessee Williams had probably seen better days. Flavorwire has a great gallery of “literary geniuses in their bathing suits.” We’ve posted a .jpeg of William Faulkner lounging poolside. This is Full Stop’s EIC’s favorite picture of a writer in a bathing suit — sadly it’s not included in this otherwise excellent collection.
