The Dangerous Summer by Ernest Hemingway

The Dangerous Summer is Hemingway's firsthand chronicle of a brutal season of bullfights. In this vivid account, Hemingway captures the exhausting pace and pressure of the season, the camaraderie and pride of the matadors, and the mortal drama as in fight after fight the rival matadors try to outdo each other with ever more daring performances. At the same time Hemingway offers an often complex and deeply personal self-portrait that reveals much about one of the twentieth century's preeminent writers.

If you have read his original novel about bullfighting, Death In The Afternoon, you will not be disappointed with the descriptions and stories that he shares in this book. You are instructed about one of the world's most controversial traditions, as well as entertained with the non stop rivalry of Antonio Ordoñez and Luis Miguel Dominguín. This novel is intensely written and shares the love that Don Ernesto had for the sport with his readers.
