Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961) is celebrated as a novelist and man of action.
He is perhaps most famous for Whom The Bell Tolls and A Farewell To Arms.
But he was equally prolific as a writer of short stories which touch on the same themes as the novels: war, love, the nature of heroism, renunciation, and the writer's life.
The present collection includes all Hemingway's shorter fiction arranged chronologically from 'Up in Michigan' (1923) to 'Old Man at the Bridge (1938) and contains stories not currently available in any other UK edition of Hemingway's work's.

Review by Salmondaze
Here we have the best collection of Short Stories by Ernest Hemingway. I don't have any complaints about this book. The best part about it is probably the fact that it separates the stories collected in his lifetime in the first half (the cream of the crop) from juvenilia, uncollected stories, fragments and manuscripts, and posthumous publications (not the top of his work). It may not make for a totally even ride through and through, but featured among these stories are some of the best writings of the author's entire career ("Hills Like White Elephants", "Snows of Kilimanjaro", "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber", "Indian Camp", etc.).
