Publisher's Summary

Ernest Hemingway's first new book of fiction since the publication of A Farewell to Arms in 1929 contains 14 stories of varying length. Some of them have appeared in magazines but the majority have not been published before. The characters and backgrounds are widely varied. "A Clean, Well-Lighted Place" is about an old Spanish Beggar. "Homage to Switzerland" concerns various conversations at a Swiss railway-station restaurant. "The Gambler, the Nun, and the Radio" is laid in the accident ward of a hospital in Western United States, and so on.

Ernest Hemingway made his literary start as a short-story writer. He has always excelled in that medium, and this volume reveals him at his best.

    "Stacy Keach Nails It!"

    Stacy Keach was born to read Hemingway. Stacy Keach makes Slattery, Hurt, Campbell--all the other Hemingway narrators--unlistenable.

    "Great Read"

    Good book of short stories. I have just been on vacation to Key West and visited Hemingway's home there. Visiting his home gives a new perspective on his work.

    "Repeat"

    This is classic great Hemingway ... but here is the challenge .. this audio book is about 40% a repeat of For Whom the Bell Tolls and also Nick Adams stories... which is not very sportsman like .. if you have already bought those x2 audiobooks earlier ...

    "Please split up the separate stories!"

    Some great short stories, nicely read by Stacey Keach. Unfortunately, the collection of stories is split into four, rather than being split into the separate short stories.
