In Hemingway's best short stories, a curtain is parted then closed, revealing the center of a man's being. Some of these stories are included in this collection, such as "Big Two Hearted River," "The Last Country" and "Fathers & Sons."
Stacy Keach is outstanding, and cleary understands the writer. I hadn't realized how versatile Keach was.
This is a book that I expect I will reread again and again over the years. I haven't read Barnes since "Flaubert's Parrot;" however, after reading this I intend to read his other works. There is no way this book could have not not won the Booker.
