Publisher's Summary

Before he gained wide fame as a novelist, Ernest Hemingway established his literary reputation with his short stories. Set in the varied landscapes of Spain, Africa, and the American Midwest, this definitive audio collection traces the development and maturation of Hemingway's distinct and revolutionary storytelling style - from the plain bald language of his first story to his mastery of seamless prose that contained a spare, eloquent pathos, as well as a sense of expansive solitude. These stories showcase the singular talent of a master, the most important American writer of the 20th century.The Short Stories, Volume 1 features Stacy Keach reading favorites including:

A great introduction!

What did you love best about The Short Stories, Volume I?

I confess that I haven't read anything by Ernest Hemingway since I was forced to do so in high school. My teachers TOLD me what a phenomenal writer he was, but my teenaged self failed to appreciate it. So, fast forward a few years and imagine my utter delight and surprise. His writing is clean, precise, succinct; his stories are still relevant and entertaining. I am now a huge fan and am gobbling up everything I can!

What did you like best about this story?

Stacy Keach was the perfect choice to narrate this collection. HIs voice was expressive, gritty and hard when required, soft and passionate.

Beautiful.

The language feels as good as it sounds. What a treasure. And the reader injects personality and heart.
