Product Description

Review

"Stamped with the urgency of Hemingway's style ... revealing tenderness of feeling beneath descriptions of brutality" (The Guardian)

"An excellent story-teller, intense and skilful in planning and bringing off his effects" (Daily Telegraph)

Book Description

A lean, tough and powerful collection of early short stories from the Nobel Prize-winning author of A Farewell To Arms.

From the Publisher

'An excellent story-teller, intense and skilful in planning and bringing off his effects' Daily Telegraph --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

'An excellent story-teller, intense and skilful in planning and bringing off his effects' Daily Telegraph

Men and women of passion and action live, fight, question, love and die. From a haunting tragedy on the snow-capped peak of Kilimanjaro to brutal sensationalism in the bullring; from rural America with its deceptive calm to the heart of war-ravaged Europe, this collection of stories depicts characters and events of intense power and realism.

About the Author

Ernest Miller Hemingway was born in Chicago in 1899 as the son of a doctor and the second of six children. After a stint as an ambulance driver at the Italian front, Hemingway came home to America in 1919, only to return to the battlefield – this time as a reporter on the Greco-Turkish war – in 1922. Resigning from journalism to focus on his writing instead, he moved to Paris where he renewed his earlier friendship with fellow American expatriates such as Ezra Pound and Gertrude Stein. Through the years, Hemingway travelled widely and wrote avidly, becoming an internationally recognized literary master of his craft. He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954, following the publication of The Old Man and the Sea. He died in 1961.
