Amazon.com review:

"FIVE STARS!!! Hemingway's short stories were always a bit more finely crafted than his novels. They allow the reader to examine and even partake in the development of Hemingway as a writer; from his early Nick Adams stories - a few of which went on to become The Sun Also Rises, A Farewell To Arms, To Have And Have Not - to the mature Hemingway who wrote about his experiences as a reporter during the Spanish Civil War and later in Europe between the wars. This work contains some of the finest short stories in American literature. Read The Short Happy Life Of Francis Macomber; The Snows of Kilimanjaro; A Clean Well Lighted Place; Big Two-Hearted River: there are too many good ones here to mention them all."
