Across three continents and four decades, here is Hemingway: the adventurer, the reporter, the man! More intimately than in all his fiction, Hemingway the reporter reveals Hemingway the man, driving an ambulance through a bullet barrage or leading guerrilla forces into Paris, always in the thick of the action. Here are his most sensational dispatches: the grisly truth about Mussolini, the horrors of total war, the rootless expatriates of the Lost Generation, the blood and beauty of bullfighting and big-game hunting...the behind-the-scenes stories that became For Whom the Bell Tolls, A Farewell to Arms, and The Sun Also Rises.

    " Really couldn't get into this one very far. His press writing was pretty precious (right word?) kind of prissy and picky. Maybe I'll try again when I get precious (pray for never.) "

    " A collection of mostly non-fiction newpaper articles he wrote for the war. Much of it was boring, if I remember correctly, but there were a few real gems. Of particular note, I "War Medals for Sale" is fantastic. "

    " i'm obviously a fan of hemingway. this is a compilation of stuff he wrote early in his career as a young newspaper staffer and then articles he wrote later on as an established best-selling author. great background. "

    " Not bad for the few pieces of gems of Hemingway's journalistic work...which informed many of his fictions. Some are not that good or are badly informed...but it captures American journalistic writing ala Esquire, etc. of that era. "

    " Some fine writing, but some of this was really constrained by the rules of reporting during WWII. Good but not his best stuff. "

About the Author
Author Ernest Hemingway

Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961), born in Oak Park, Illinois, started his career as a writer in a newspaper office in Kansas City at the age of seventeen. After the United States entered the First World War, he joined a volunteer ambulance unit in the Italian army. After his return to the United States, he became a reporter for Canadian and American newspapers. During the twenties, Hemingway became a member of the group of expatriate Americans in Paris, which he described in his first important work, The Sun Also Rises. He also wrote Farewell to Arms, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and The Old Man and the Sea, the story of an old fisherman’s journey, his long and lonely struggle with a fish and the sea, and his victory in defeat. He also wrote short stories that are collected in Men Without Women and The Fifth Column and the First Forty-Nine Stories. Hemingway died in Idaho in 1961.
