Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When In Our Time was published in 1925, it was praised by Ford Madox Ford, John Dos Passos, and F. Scott Fitzgerald for its simple and precise use of language to convey a wide range of complex emotions, and it earned Hemingway a place beside Sherwood Anderson and Gertrude Stein among the most promising American writers of that period. In Our Time contains several early Hemingway classics, including the famous Nick Adams stories "Indian Camp," "The Doctor and the Doctor's Wife," "The Three Day Blow," and "The Battler," and introduces readers to the hallmarks of the Hemingway style: a lean, tough prose — enlivened by an car for the colloquial and an eye for the realistic that suggests, through the simplest of statements, a sense of moral value and a clarity of heart.

Now recognized as one of the most original short story collections in twentieth-century literature, In Our Time provides a key to Hemingway's later works.

Synopsis:

A great way to introduce yourself to Hemingway.

This is Hemingway's best work. That is my opinion, but I come from a rather extensive background of the reading of his work and this is the only volume I have read twice out of all of his works. It is comprised of short stories and glued together with italicized vignettes that in some way relate to the stories. I love this work! Get it!
