Editorial Reviews

The New York Times Book Review - Paul Hendrickson
I've never wanted to be an audiophile of literature, certainly not of Hemingway. His sentences were in my head, my ear. I didn't need people reading him to me, not even Donald Sutherland or Stacy Keach or William Hurt or Brian Dennehy. Or so I thought. But a funny thing happened on the way to my expected disregard for these recordings…I began to love the sound of Hemingway, if not exactly in new ways, at least in heightened ways. The best of his stories and novels started to feel as if they were running even swifter, bluer, in their narrow channels, clean as the pebbles at the bottom of those iconic Upper Peninsula trout streams. Freed from the page, I could close my eyes and lie on some mental living-room rug and dream my way in all over again.

Meet the Author

Born in Oak Park, Illinois, in 1899, Ernest Hemingway served in the Red Cross during World War I as an ambulance driver and was severely wounded in Italy. He moved to Paris in 1921, devoted himself to writing fiction, and soon became part of the expatriate community, along with Gertrude Stein, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ezra Pound, and Ford Madox Ford. He revolutionized American writing with his short, declarative sentences and terse prose. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954, and his classic novella The Old Man and the Sea won the Pulitzer Prize in 1953. Known for his larger-than-life personality and his passions for bullfighting, fishing, and big-game hunting, he died in Ketchum, Idaho, on July 2, 1961.
