The Nick Adams Stories | [Ernest Hemingway]

The Nick Adams Stories

"Of the place where he had been a boy he had written well enough. As well as he could then." So thought a dying writer in an early version of The Snows of Kilimanjaro. The writer was, of course, Ernest Hemingway. The place was the Michigan of his boyhood, where he remembered himself as Nick Adams. The now-famous "Nick Adams" stories show a memorable character growing from child to adolescent to soldier, veteran, writer, and parent - a sequence closely paralleling the events of Hemingway's life.

Publisher's Summary

These classic stories feature one of Hemingway's most famous characters.

"Of the place where he had been a boy he had written well enough. As well as he could then." So thought a dying writer in an early version of The Snows of Kilimanjaro. The writer was, of course, Ernest Hemingway. The place was the Michigan of his boyhood summers, where he remembered himself as Nick Adams. The now-famous "Nick Adams" stories show a memorable character growing from child to adolescent to soldier, veteran, writer, and parent - a sequence closely paralleling the events of Hemingway's life.

In this arrangement, Nick Adams emerges clearly as the first in a long line of Hemingway's fictional selves. Later versions were all to have behind them part of Nick's history and, correspondingly, part of Hemingway's. This is a must-have for fans of the iconic author.

    "Let Nick Adams introduce you to Ernest Hemingway"

    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.
