'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'

Book Description Arrow. 1 Paperback(s), 2006. soft. Book Condition: New. First published in 1933, following A Farewell to Arms and Death in the Afternoon, this collection of 17 stories includes "A Way You'll Never Be"; "Fathers and Sons"; and "A Clean, Well-Lighted Place," which James Joyce called "one of the best short stories ever written." It also includes three stories not in the original collection, "The Capital of the World"; "Old Man at the Bridge"; and "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber," in which a cowardly hunter, shown up by his guide and ridiculed by his wife, comes to terms with his fear of death. Writing in a terse, stripped-down style, first as a reporter and then a novelist, Hemingway was an enormously influential author from the 1920s through the 50s, and won both the Pulitzer and Nobel Prizes. J.D. Salinger, Hunter S. Thompson, Charles Bukowski, and Jack Kerouac all acknowledged their indebtedness to him, as did non-authors like artist Edward Hopper, whose Nighthawks at the Diner was inspired in part by Hemingway's short stories. 167.
