Review:

"Many of the episodes contain the most exciting and effective writing Hemingway has ever done." (John W. Aldridge Saturday Review)

"This book contains some of the best of Hemingway's descriptions of nautre: the waves breaking white and green on the reef off the coast of Cuba; the beauty of the morning on the deep water; the hermit crabs and land crabs and ghost crabs; a big barracuda stalking mullet; a heron flying with his white wings over the green water; the ibis and flamingoes and spoonbills, the last of these beautiful with the sharp rose of their color; the mosquitoes in clouds from the marshes; the water that curled and blew under the lash of the wind; the sculpture that the wind and sand had made of a piece of driftwood, gray and sanded and embedded in white, floury sand." (Edmund Wilson Saturday Review)

Book Description:

Hemingway's last work before his death, Islands in the Stream traces the life of an artist and adventurer in the Gulf Stream.
