The Short Stories of Ernest Hemingway

Read by: Stacy Keach
Before he gained wide fame as a novelist, Ernest Hemingway established his literary reputation with his short stories. Set in the varied landscapes of Spain, Africa, and the American Midwest, this definitive audio collection traces the development and maturation of Hemingway's distinct and revolutionary storytelling style -- from the plain bald language of his first story to his mastery of seamless prose that contained a spare, eloquent pathos, as well as a sense of expansive solitude. These stories showcase the singular talent of a master, the most important American writer of the twentieth century.
The Short Stories Volume I features Stacy Keach reading such favorites as: The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomben The Capital of the Work- The Snows of Kilimanjaro; Old Man at the Briage; Up in Michigan; On the Quai at Smyrna; Indian Camp; The Doctor and the Doctor's Wife, The End of Something; The Three-Day Blow, The Battler; A Very Short Story, Soldier's Home, The Revolutionist; Mr. and Mrs. Elliot, Cat in the Rain; Out of Season; and Cross-Country Snow.
