Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Pound and Joyce are anthropomorphic struggling cartoonists in 1920s Paris who decide rob a bank. As you do.

The best parts are when Gertrude Stein gives Hemingway two pages worth of advice -- use a blue pencil, so you don't have to erase it, avoid narrative captions (which are then used further down the page,) never copy a photograph, and on and on -- and when Hemingway and Fitzgerald head off to the men's room to determine if Zelda is right when she says Fitzgerald isn't big enough.

And Hemingway spends some time talking about how awesome the running of the bulls is. But I think everyone expects that.
