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 brings these stories to life

Even having read many of these stories on paper, hearing Stacy Keach read them brought whole new understanding.

His tenor, and the soulfulness of his voice seems to embody Hemingway's mood and themes.

Stacy Keach Nails It!

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

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 ...

Not the best

This series of stories was not as good as others by Hemingway. Will continue to sort through other stories by this great writer. Thanks

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.

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.

The music ruins it

Excellent stories by Hemingway, Excellent narration by Keach.
But why the ridiculous and annoying cello music??? It is distracting and makes it an impossible bedtime book.
