Across three continents and four decades … here is Hemingway—the adventurer, the reporter, the man. More intimately than all his fiction, Hemingway the reporter reveals Hemingway the man—driving an ambulance through a bullet-barrage or leading guerrilla forces into Paris—always in the thick of the action. Here are his most sensational dispatches—the grisly truth about Mussolini, the horrors of total war, the rootless expatriates of the lost generation, the blood and beauty of bullfighting and big game hunting. Here are the behind-the-scenes stories that became For Whom the Bell Tolls, A Farewell to Arms, and The Sun Also Rises.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Perhaps the century’s greatest travel writer, his European catalogue of winds, breezes, trees, funiculars, rivers, lakes, wines and fiestas are nonpareil.” Kirkus Reviews
“A highly readable feast…The pieces invariably exhibit Hemingway’s expertise at digging out the facts, his uncanny grasp of dialogue and his shining simplicity of style. They also contain a surprisingly strong element of humor. Here is Hemingway ironically knowing, skilled in his craft and very wide awake, a literary apprentice who hardly seems an apprentice.”

Author Bio: Ernest Hemingway

Author Bio: Ernest Hemingway

Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961), born in Oak Park, Illinois, started his career as a writer in a newspaper office in Kansas City at the age of seventeen. After the United States entered the First World War, he joined a volunteer ambulance unit in the Italian army. After his return to the United States, he became a reporter for Canadian and American newspapers. During the twenties, Hemingway became a member of the group of expatriate Americans in Paris, which he described in his first important work, The Sun Also Rises. He also wrote Farewell to Arms, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and The Old Man and the Sea, the story of an old fisherman’s journey, his long and lonely struggle with a fish and the sea, and his victory in defeat. He also wrote short stories that are collected in Men Without Women and The Fifth Column and the First Forty-Nine Stories. Hemingway died in Idaho in 1961.
