“From Ernest Hemingway’s Preface- ‘There are many kinds of stories in this book. I hope you will find some that you like- In going where you have to go, and doing what you have to do, and seeing what you have to see, you dull and blunt the instrument you write with. But I would rather have it bent and dulled and know I had to put it on the grindstone and hammer it into shape and put a whetstone to it, and know that I had something to write about, than to have it bright and shining, and nothing to say, or smooth and well-oiled in the closet, but unused.’ A collection of Hemingway’s first forty-nine short stories, featuring a brief introduction by the author and lesser known as well as familiar tales, including ‘Up in Michigan’, ‘Fifty Grand’, and ‘The Light of the World’, and the Snows of Kilimanjaro, Winner Take Nothing’and Men Without Womencollections.”
