9780099909507: The Torrents Of Spring: A Romantic Novel in Honor of the Passing of a Great Race

Subtitled 'A Romantic Novel in Honour of the Passing of a Great Race', The Torrents of Spring - Hemingway's second published work - wonderfully parodies the themes and styles of the 'great race' of writers of his generation.

Spring is coming to the small towns of Michigan, but the snow still covers the land when Scripps O'Neil sets of for Chicago, decides to stop a while in Petoskey, and meets up with Yogi Johnson. Their bizarre stories are a brilliant satire on conventional fiction. The characters they meet are absurd and yet strangely familiar. Short, fast-paced, funny, The Torrents of Spring throws light on Hemingway's later work - and is a delight to read. Here we can see the developing talent of one of the great novelists of the twentieth century.

Review:

"Extraordinary tour de force ... For perhaps the first time in our literature, a kind of anti-Western Western" (Leslie A. Fiedler)

"Hemingway gave the century a way of making literary art that dealt with the remarkable violence of our time. He listened and watched and invented the language - using the power, the terror, of silences - with which we could name ourselves" ( New York Times Book Review)

Book Description:

Hemingway's first novel, a wonderful satirical take on the world of writers, by the Nobel Prize-winning author of A Farewell To Arms.
