An assemblage of reflections on the nature of writing and the writer from one the greatest American writers of the twentieth century. Throughout Hemingway’s career as a writer, he maintained that it was bad luck to talk about writing—that it takes off “whatever butterflies have on their wings and the arrangement of hawk’s feathers if you show it or talk about it.” Despite this belief, by the end of his life he had done just what he intended not to do. In his novels and stories, in letters to editors, friends, fellow artists, and critics, in interviews and in commissioned articles on the subject, Hemingway wrote often about writing. And he wrote as well and as incisively about the subject as any writer who ever lived… This book contains Hemingway’s reflections on the nature of the writer and on elements of the writer’s life, including specific and helpful advice to writers on the craft of writing, work habits, and discipline. The Hemingway personality comes through in general wisdom, wit, humor, and insight, and in his insistence on the integrity of the writer and of the profession itself. —From the Preface by Larry W. Phillips

An examination of how The Kansas City Star’s style guide shaped Hemingway’s unmistakable writing style. Acclaimed for his lean, succinct prose, Write Like Hemingway connects the dots between Ernest Hemingway’s earliest writing job and his most memorable fiction. After graduating high school, and before heading to Italy to drive an ambulance during World War I, “Papa” spent about 6 months over the course of 1917 and 1918 writing police reports for The Kansas City Star. Following the paper’s style guide, with rules like “Use short sentences,” and approximately 100 more similarly exacting ones, Hemingway learned how to write, and carried these lessons of narrative economy with him for the rest of his life.

Ernest Hemingway’s lifelong zeal for hunting is reflected in his masterful works of fiction, from his famous account of an African safari in “The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber” to passages about duck hunting in Across the River and into the Trees. For Hemingway, hunting was more than just a passion; it was a means through which to explore our humanity and man’s relationship to nature. Courage, awe, respect, precision, patience—these were the virtues that Hemingway honored in the hunter, and his ability to translate these qualities into prose has produced some of the strongest accounts of hunting of all time. Hemingway on Hunting offers the full range of Hemingway’s writing about the hunting life. With selections from his best-loved novels and stories, along with journalistic pieces from such magazines as Esquire and Vogue, this spectacular collection is a must-have for anyone who has ever tasted the thrill of the hunt—in person or on the page.

The first full biography of Ernest Hemingway in more than fifteen years; the first to draw upon a wide array of never-before-used material; the first written by a woman, from the widely acclaimed biographer of Norman Mailer, Peggy Guggenheim, Henry Miller, and Louise Bryant. A revelatory look into the life and work of Ernest Hemingway, considered in his time to be the greatest living American novelist and short-story writer, winner of the 1953 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954. Mary Dearborn's new biography gives the richest and most nuanced portrait to date of this complex, enigmatically unique American artist, whose same uncontrollable demons that inspired and drove him throughout his life undid him at the end, and whose seven novels and six-short story collections informed--and are still informing--fiction writing generations after his death.

"Men at War" edited by Ernest Hemingway is an imposing anthology (over 1000 pages and over 80 stories) of men in battle conditions. The range of time is from Biblical to the middle of World War II, when it was published. The bulk of the conflicts described come from the Napoleonic wars and World War I. Most are true, first person accounts, but some fiction is included. In all cases the effect that war has on the human condition, both good and bad, is effectively described. A truly awesome collection on a single theme. As with most anthologies, there are a few stories that do not inspire, but overall, a fine reading experience. I was first introduced to the book in the HBO series "Pacific" as being carried by a beloved commander who was killed. One of life's ironies. I love Ernest Hemingway's writing style and the history of war, so I was very happy with this book. I especially like the amount of research put into historical data I gleaned from this book. I wish I would have known about it when I was in school for a report or review. E. Joseph Anna The deepest story in this one goes all the way back to King David of Israel with the fight to the death with Goliath of the Philistines. A truly epic work. Author Glenn Langohr
