In Ernest Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises a young Spaniard is killed while running with the bulls. I had a conversation in Pamplona with a gentleman who told me it was his grandmother’s brother who knew Hemingway and who was killed during the running of the bulls. Alas he wasn’t running with the bulls; but, merely trying to cross the street from one wooden shield to another. Seeing that the street was clear of bulls, he started across the street. In a split second a renegade bull appeared and killed him. Literary license does make for a good story.
