Spare, powerful, tough: these early Hemingway stories are in part autobiographical and wonderfully persuasive in their realism.

Spare, powerful, tough: these early Hemingway stories are in part autobiographical and totally convincing in their realism. Men and women of passion and action live, fight, love and die in scenes of dramatic intensity. From haunting tragedy on the snow-capped peak of Kilimanjaro to brutal sensationalism in the bullring; from rural America with its deceptive calm to the heart of war-ravaged Europe, each of the stories in this classic collection is a feat of imagination, a masterpiece of description. 'An excellent story-teller, intense and skilful in planning and bringing off his effects' Daily Telegraph.
