Twenty-six tales taken from every stage of Hemingway's career make up this collection.
'In the fall the war was always there but we did not go to it any more'Taken from every stage of his career, these 26 tales reflect the particular genius of Hemingway’s deceptively simple style. His lean, terse prose perfectly complements his subjects: the rugged grandeur of the forests and lakes of north-west American logging country, the brutal grace of Spanish bullfights and the raw spirit of the Central African savannah. The selection includes ‘The Snows of Kilimanjaro’, ‘In Another Country’, ‘Fathers and Sons’, ‘The Capital of the World’ and ‘The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber’.
'No writer ever worked harder to keep himself out of his stories, yet no style bears more of the stamp of its author'
