The men and women who came of age during the Great Depression and served in World War II have only recently been given the accolade "The Greatest Generation." That they did not give themselves such a name is itself an indication of how modest and matter-of-fact they had been about their sacrifices and heroism. But even in the midst of an all-out war, not everyone gets to be a hero. A.E. Hotchner was an entry-level lawyer in a St.

BOOKS
November 18, 1990 | Robert Greenfield, Greenfield is the author of "S.T.P.: A Journey Through America With the Rolling Stones."
For years, people around the Rolling Stones have talked about Bill Wyman's book. As the only band member to have compulsively kept a diary throughout all those oh-so-tumultuous years, Wyman figured to have the goods on everyone. He alone clipped articles from the local paper wherever the Stones played. It was even said that he had a book of matches from every club the boys ever visited, either singly or in a group, after their show was done. By all accounts, Wyman's story would be the one that told all. Not so. Rather than "the story of a rock and roll band," "Stone Alone" is instead the autobiography of a most peculiar man, one so particularly English that he can only be understood in the context of when and where he was born.

Earlier, 300,000 bottles of Newman's Own Old Fashioned Roadside Virgin Lemonade were sent to the troops. "The way we figure it, there should be around two bottles for every man and woman serving in Operation Desert Shield," said A. E. Hotchner, co-founder with the actor of the company, which donates its profits to charity.

Of the dozens of bars across the globe that can probably claim legendary writer and imbiber Ernest Hemingway as a former regular, Sloppy Joe's in Key West, Fla., surely boasts the most entertaining way to honor the writer's memory. Earlier this month, the bar hosted its 27th annual Hemingway look-alike contest.
