The Classic Stories Featuring 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 of course was 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. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “Keach gives Adams the soft-spoken voice of an innocent, a tone that remains a constant even as the character encounters the realities of living, including hit men and the horrors of war. Keach expertly illuminates the way Hemingway’s simple prose expresses something deeper. In stories like ‘Big Two-Headed River,’ Keach’s narration reveals the hidden complexity of the author’s style. Keach’s voice often carries a nostalgic tone that makes the stories feel personal. These stories are familiar to many, but Keach’s fresh reading is superb.”

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Clare | 2/17/2014

    " To be honest, this book was poorly written, aand I would have expected more from such a famous author. The bridging from chapter to chapter was absent, and I often found myself confused. I don't think it has any redeeming qualities, so I stopped reading on about page 270. Worse still, it had so many swear words in every sentence (a VERY colorful vocabulary), that it could give you a heart attack. For a time we had to read it out loud, and we had to beep out words more than talk! I do not recommend it to anyone. "
