"A most beautiful, moving and human book" ( Vita Sackville-West)
"A novel of great power" ( Times Literary Supplement)
"Flawless... such mastery of narrative, imagery and feeling, the prerequisites for great prose" (Edna O'Brien Guardian)
"It seems such simple and straightforward language, but it isn't. The first chapter of A Farewell to Arms is only two and a bit pages but there is almost every variety of sentence structure. It is incredibly artful writing, and part of the art is disguising that it is artful." (John Harvey Guardian)
"Essential Hemingway...a gripping account of the life of an American volunteer in the Italian army and a poignant love story." ( Daily Express)
A beautiful hardback gift edition offering new insight into Hemingway's craft and celebrating one of the greatest war novels ever written.
