BOOK REVIEW

A MOVEABLE FEAST by Ernest Hemingway
BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR
Released: May 5, 1964

"There can be little doubt of its interest and attraction for many as a reprise of a now legendary time when Hemingway was young and happy and 'invulnerable,' and a place— well, 'There is never any ending to Paris."
What we've all been awaiting: the first of Hemingway's posthumous works he began in 1958 and finished in 1960. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

THE NICK ADAMS STORIES by Ernest Hemingway
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: April 17, 1972

"There are eight new stories constituting 40% of the book and extending its interest as unpublished rather than merely republished Hemingway."
A short preface by Philip Young explains the raison d'etre of this presentation of the Nick Adams stories which here are arranged chronologically and therefore provide a continuity — from child to adolescent to soldier to writer — and reveal the character developmentally. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

GREEN HILLS OF AFRICA by Ernest Hemingway

BOOK REVIEW

THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA by Ernest Hemingway
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Sept. 8, 1952

"There's adventure here and Hemingway's old gift for merging drama and tenderness gives it a rare charm."

BOOK REVIEW

FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Oct. 1, 1969

"In 'The Denunciation,' a savage and ironic gallantry edges a man's betrayal of another as a spy. 'The Butterfly and the Tank' is a delicate round-about of various perceptions, tragicomic as is the central event dealing with a shooting in a bar. 'Night Before the Battle' is core Hemingway—the last hours of a doomed soldier talking, talking out his long night. 'Under the Ridge' projects the dark rigors of a world of men and war and one soldier's withdrawal into a defensive hatred. . . ."
Four previously uncollected short stories set in the dust and heat of the Spanish Civil War plus an out of print play, "The Fifth Column," written during Hemingway's tour in 1937-39—the stories an opportune reminder of Hemingway's astonishing skill in the days before his precision gave way to Papa's Great Posture.

BOOK REVIEW

FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Dec. 2, 1987

"Moments of interest, but luckiest are those who still have their copies of The First Forty-Nine."
What's most worthy in this hefty, three-part volume of still more Hemingway is that it contains (in its first section) all the stories that appeared together in the 1938 (and now out of print) The Fifth Column and the First Forty-Nine Stories. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

ERNEST HEMINGWAY SELECTED LETTERS 1917-1961 by Ernest Hemingway
NON-FICTION
Released: April 6, 1981

"Fascinating, of course, but strictly as a sort of story—one that dramatizes the tension between the fictional, heroic Hemingway and his mean-spirited creator."
Baker has edited this first-ever collection of Hemingway letters with the sensible idea that everyone knows the life too well to need much explanatory material—particularly who's who; and while you may have to figure out some identities, it was well that Baker resisted the temptation to make the letters stand as a sort of Hemingway autobiography.
