Before he gained wide fame as a novelist, Ernest Hemingway established his literary reputation with his short stories. This collection, "The Short Stories," originally published in 1938, is definitive. Among these forty-nine short stories are Hemingway's earliest efforts, written when he was a young foreign correspondent in Paris, and such masterpieces as "Hills Like White Elephants, " "The Killers, " "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber, " and "The Snows of Kilimanjaro." Set in the varied landscapes o Spain, Africa, and the American Midwest, this collection traces the development and maturation of Hemingway's distinct and revolutionary storytelling style - from the plain, bald language of his first story, "Up in Michigan, " to the seamless prose and spare, eloquent pathos of "A Clean, Well-Lighted Place" to the expansive solitude of the Big Two-Hearted River stories. These stories showcase the singular talent of a master, the most important American writer of the twentieth century.
