Hemingway's classic portrait of the pageantry of bullfighting

In Death in the Afternoon, Hemingway shares the sights, the sounds, the excitement, and above all, the knowledge which fuelled his passion for Spain and the bullfight. This remarkable book contains some of his finest writing, inspired by the intense life, as well as the inevitable death, of those hot, violent afternoons...

Reviews

Hemingway's style, at its best, is a superb vehicle for revealing tenderness of feeling beneath descriptions of brutality

Guardian

The most readable and the most nearly exhaustive account of the Spanish Bullfight that we have
