At the age of twenty-two, Ernest Hemingway wrote his first short story, "Up in Michigan." Seventeen years and forty-eight titles later, he was the undisputed master of the short-story form and the leading American man of letters. The Short Stories, introduced here with a revealing preface by the author, chronicles Hemingway's development as a writer, from his earliest attempts in the chapbook Three Stories and Ten Poems, published in Paris in 1923, to his more mature accomplishments in Winner Take Nothing. Originally published in 1938 along with The Fifth Column, this collection premiered "The Capital of the World" and "Old Man at the Bridge," which derive from Hemingway's experiences in Spain, as well as "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber" and "The Snows of Kilimanjaro," which figure among the finest of Hemingway's short fictions.

Never having been a big Hemingway fan, I was very surprised by the quality of some of the short stories contained within. There are some fantastic gems, such as "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber." For my tastes, Hemingway's writing style is made more for the short story and not the full-length novel. This collection is well worth the time investment and, if it is the only Hemingway you ever read, you will have chosen well.
