A milestone in Hemingway's career, this second collection of short stories brings to life details observed only by the eye of a uniquely gifted artist, from thr Nobel Prize-winning author of A Farewell to Arms.

Medlemsvurdering:
"Men without Women" is a collection of 14 short stories examining the lives and insecurities of once strong men, their relationships, hardships, weaknesses, heartbreak and loneliness. As you understand, I cannot go into every plot of the 14 short stories, but I will say that my favorite of them is "A Canary for One", telling the tale of a troubled couple travelling home after a holiday, then to find themselves trapped in a conversation with an elderly woman with a canary. I was completely taken aback by these stories, they are all magnificent and very charming and entertaining, not to mention realistic and beautiful! "Men without Women" is perhaps not the author's most famous writing, but it's brilliant still! The writing is realistic, charming, warm and funny, this is a collection of novels you ought to own!

Om forfatteren

Ernest Miller Hemingway was born in Chicago in 1899 as the son of a doctor and the second of six children. After a stint as an ambulance driver at the Italian front, Hemingway came home to America in 1919, only to return to the battlefield - this time as a reporter on the Greco-Turkish war - in 1922. Resigning from journalism to focus on his writing instead, he moved to Paris where he renewed his earlier friendship with fellow American expatriates such as Ezra Pound and Gertrude Stein. Through the years, Hemingway travelled widely and wrote avidly, becoming an internationally recognized literary master of his craft. He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954, following the publication of The Old Man and the Sea. He died in 1961.
