The Essential Hemingway
It has been said of Ernest Hemingway that half the writers of the twentieth century have tried to imitate him and the other half have tried not to.
A towering figure in the pantheon of American letters, the leading voice of the ‘lost generation’, winner of the Nobel Prize for literature and a Pulitzer Prize, Hemingway is known around the world for the brilliance of his writing. The Essential Hemmingway is the perfect introduction to his astonishing, wide-ranging body of work. This impressive collection includes the full text of Fiesta, Hemingway’s first major novel; long extracts from his three greatest works of fiction, A Farewell to Arms, To Have and Have Not and For Whom the Bell Tolls; twenty-five complete stories; and the breathtaking epilogue to Death in the Afternoon.
