Foreword by John, Patrick, & Gregory Hemingway. Photo of Hemingway by Man Ray on rear dust jacket panel. Before he gained wide fame as a novelist, Ernest Hemingway established his literary reputation with his short stories. This collection, The Short Stories, originally published in 1938, is definitive. Among these forty-nine short stories are Hemingway's earliest efforts, written when he was a young foreign correspondent in Paris, and such masterpieces as Hills Like White Elephants, The Killers, The Short, Happy Life of Francis Macomber, and The Snows of Kilimanjaro. Set in the varied landscapes of Spain, Africa, and the American Midwest, this collection traces the development and maturation of Hemingway's distinct and revolutionary storytelling style -- from the plain, bald language of his first story, Up in Michigan, to the seamless prose and spare, eloquent pathos of A Clean, Well-Lighted Place to the expansive solitude of the Big Two-Hearted River stories. These stories showcase the singular talent of a master, the most important American writer of the twentieth century.
