Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
They are a highly readable feast, these 172 articles written by Hemingway for the Toronto Star between early 1920 and late 1924. They range from amusing sketches of everyday life in Toronto to firsthand and sometimes quite lengthly reports on the social and political scene in postwar Europe. Whether the subjects are Lloyd George's visit to Canada, the behavior of women at prize-fights, Christmas in Paris, bullfighting in Pamplona, France's political woes, Mussolini's Fascists or Toronto's young Communists, the pieces invariably exhibit Hemingway's expertise at digging out the facts, his uncanny grasp of dialogue and his shining simplicity of style. They also contain a surprisingly strong element of humor. Here is Hemingway ironically knowing, skilled in his craft and very wide awake, a literary apprentice who hardly seems an apprentice. November 18
Library Journal
Hemingway undervalued his journal ism, insisting it was ``timely rather than permanent.'' But many of the 172 arti cles he wrote for the Toronto Star merit attention and admiration. On assign ment in post-war Europe, Hemingway observed and absorbed many of the subjects (war and love, courage and sham, cruelty and injustice) that were to shape his fiction. His prose style also began to assume its distinctive rhythms and diction. Several of these dispatches would reappear,shrewdly altered, as vi gnettes in In Our Time (the thrill of trout and tuna fishing; the conscious ness of bullfighting as more than sport``a very great tragedy''). In By - line: Ernest Hemingway (Scribner, 1967), William White included only 29 of these pieces. The full edition is most welcome. Arthur Waldhorn, English Dept., City Coll., CUNY
