Before he gained wide fame as a novelist, Ernest Hemingway established his literary reputation with his short stories. Set in the varied landscapes of Spain, Africa, and the American Midwest, this definitive audio collection traces the development and maturation of Hemingway's distinct and revolutionary storytelling style - from the plain bold language of this first story to his mastery of seamless prose that contained a spare, eloquent pathos, as well as a sense of expansive solitude. These stories showcase the singular talent of a master, the most important American writer of the 20th century. The Short Stories, Volume III
features Stacy Keach reading such favorites as: "An Alpine Idyll", "A Pursuit Race", "Today is Friday", "Banal Story", "Now I Lay Me", "After the Storm", "A Clean, Well-lighted Place", "The Light of the World", "God Rest You Merry Gentlemen", "The Sea Change", "A Way You'll Never Be", "The Mother of the Queen", "One Reader Writes", "Homage to Switzerland", "A Day's Wait", "A Natural History of the Dead", "Wine of Wyoming", "The Gambler", "The Nun and the Radio", and "Fathers and Sons".
