Publisher's Summary

First published in 1927, Men Without Women represents some of Hemingway's most important and compelling early writing. In these 14 stories, Hemingway begins to examine the themes that would occupy his later works: the casualties of war, the often uneasy relationship between men and women, sport and sportsmanship.

In "Banal Story", Hemingway offers a lasting tribute to the famed matador Maera. "In Another Country" tells of an Italian major recovering from war wounds as he mourns the untimely death of his wife. "The Killers" is the hard-edged story about two Chicago gunmen and their potential victim. Nick Adams makes an appearance in "Ten Indians," in which he is presumably betrayed by his Indian girlfriend, Prudence. And "Hills Like White Elephants" is a young couple's subtle, heartwrenching discussion of abortion. Pared down, gritty, and subtly expressive, these stories show the young Hemingway emerging as America's finest short story writer.

    "Great and varied collection"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would because each story is interesting, short and sweet. Does not get dull or boring, if you find that the particular story does not suit you its not long before the next one starts.


    Which character – as performed by Stacy Keach – was your favourite?

    Think this is my first and she did a great job narrating the stories. Would absolutely pick up more books with her as the voice


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Think it would be more of a sketch film and even at that I think it would be fairly hard to make it into something good.


    Any additional comments?

    Really liked the bullfighting one, think it was the first. Really set the tone and gave a hint of what was to come. The concept is very interesting and there is no shortage of things men does for women. Not to mention what men with out women does to get women. Really liked the one about the boxer as well, really emotional and give a lot of depth to a character in a very short amount of time!

    "Masculine Prose."

    A wonderful collection of short stories! I listened to it while working at my desk, it is an interesting companion to dull and dreary working hours. There are many interesting and varied stories and if you like Hemingway's narratives, and you're like me, you will want to listen to them again and again.
