A novel set in Paris in the 1920s, in a world of Pernod, loose living, parties and expatriate Americans. A young couple are attracted to the excitement of the Spanish fiesta, with the heady atmosphere of the bullfight, where their affair becomes strained by new passions and new jealousies.
In these early Hemingway stories, which are partly autobiographical, men and women of passion live, fight, love and die in scenes of dramatic intensity. They range from haunting tragedy on the snow-capped peak of Kilimanjaro, to brutal America with its deceptive calm, and war-ravaged Europe
This title is Ernest Hemingway's lyrical journal of a month on safari in the great game country of East Africa, where he and his wife Pauline journeyed in December 1933. It is an examination of the lure of the hunt and an impassioned portrait of the glory of the African landsape.
Hemingway's passion for Spain and the bullfight is renowned. This book contains some of the finest short stories Hemingway ever wrote, inspired by the intense life as well as the inevitable death of those hot, violent afternoons.
