Ernest Hemingway’s first new book of fiction since the publication of A Farewell to Arms in 1929 contains fourteen 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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “[Hemingway] believes, as much as T. S. Eliot ever did, that we are the hollow men, we are the stuffed men, leaning together with headpieces filled with straw. If Hemingway couldn’t make a story ring hollow, he would fail esthetically. The effect he aims at is emptiness, and to say he achieves emptiness is to praise his artistry. ”

    New York Times

    " The Hemingway short story rarely disappoints. These stories capture a sense not only of a specific time, but the universal that is contained at any set point in time. I've said this of the other Hemingway I've commented on, but his voice is compelling and fresh even today. "

    " Masterfully written but not as captivating as The Old Man And The Sea "

    " My favorite stories in this collection: A Way You'll Never Be; The Sea Change; The Light of the World; A Clean, Well-Lighted Place; and After the Storm. Classic Hemingway. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Bill Littell | 1/10/2014

    " To state the obvious, Hemingway is a special author who lived life intensely and used his experience, along with an advanced knack for detail and description, to paint absolutely indelible, human moments in his stories. Here is an author to be enjoyed and studied. "
