The Complete Short Stories of Ernest Hemingway
by Ernest Hemingway
The Short Stories of Ernest Hemingway presents many of Hemingway’s most famous classics alongside rare and unpublished material: Hemingway’s early drafts and correspondence, his dazzling out-of-print essay on the art of the short story, and two marvelous examples of his earliest work--his first published story, “The Judgment of Manitou,” which Hemingway wrote when still a high school student, and a never-before-published story, written when the author was recovering from a war injury in Milan after WWI. This work offers vital insight into the artistic development of one of the twentieth century’s greatest writers. It is a perfect introduction for a new generation of Hemingway readers, and it belongs in the collection of any true Hemingway fan.

I guess this is kind of boring, but I give Hemingway’s Short Stories to a lot of people. I’m a big Hemingway fan. He’s just so–such an artisan of the story. His stories are so well-crafted. It’s one of those things where you look at a work of art and you can’t exactly figure out how they did it, but it’s perfect.
