A collectible book, great selection of stories and a fascinating glimpse into how Hemingway worked.
on July 30, 2017
Like many, I love reading Hemingway. I was a little hesitant to pay the cost of this collection of stories, but after reading it I love it. This is a collectible book, with a nice binding and hardcover. It has some stories displayed with several versions of the same story, with pencil lines through sections he scratched out. It provides a fascinating look into the mind of one of the truly great writers. Viewing the way he edited and rewrote stories as he tweaked and polished them, makes me admire Hemingway all the more, seeing what a true craftsman he was. I've read that he worked very hard at his writing, and this book gives us all a peak into that world he worked within, molding and shaping his stories to create what we have come to know of his works. I love this book.
