"Ernest Hemingway, a literary icon and considered one of the greatest American writers of all time, is the subject of a major documentary by award-winning filmmakers Ken Burns and Lynn Novick. This intimate portrait of Hemingway--who brilliantly captured the complexities of the human condition in spare and profound prose, and whose work remains deeply influential in literature and culture--interweaves a close study of biographical events with excerpts from his work. The Hemingway Stories features Hemingway's most significant short stories in chronological order, so viewers of the film as well as fans old and new can follow the trajectory of his impressive life and career. Hemingway's beloved classics, such as "The Short and Happy Life of Francis Macomber," "Up in Michigan," "Indian Camp," and "The Snows of Kilimanjaro," are accompanied by fresh insights from renowned writers around the world--Mario Vargas Llosa, Edna O'Brien, Abraham Verghese, Tim O'Brien, and Mary Karr. Tobias Wolff's introduction adds a new perspective to Hemingway's work, and Wolff has selected additional stories that demonstrate Hemingway's talent and range. The power of the Ernest Hemingway's revolutionary style is perhaps most striking in his short stories, and here readers can encounter the tales that created the legend: stories of men and women in love and in war and on the hunt, stories of a lost generation born into a fractured time. This collection is a perfect introduction for a new generation of Hemingway readers and a vital volume for any fan. This book is part of the list Thorndike Press Large Print Core"--… (lisätietoja)

Narrating 'The Hemingway Stories'
Review of the Simon & Schuster audiobook edition, released simultaneously with the Scribner paperback & Kindle eBook editions (March 2021) > a selection from various earlier publications (1923-1939) with added introductions & commentaries

I reviewed this 'Best of' selection when it was first released in March 2021 in conjunction with the then upcoming Ken Burns / Lynn Novick PBS TV mini-series documentary Hemingway (April 5-7, 2021).

When Audible offered the audiobook for a sale price in May 2022 I didn't hesitate to pick up a further edition as this selection contains most of my top favourites of Hemingway's short stories, some of which I have probably read over a dozen times by now, but which are still intriguing for the simple but complex views of life and death which they present. The selection provides the bonus of other authors giving their commentary on each of the stories (most of which you can read in my Kindle highlights).

Actor Stacy Keach as Ernest Hemingway in the 1-man biographical play "Pamplona" (2017/18) by Jim McGrath. Image sourced from a theatre review at WTTW Chicago.

This audiobook primarily collects actor Stacy Keach's readings of The First Forty Nine Stories (1938) from the 3 Volume audiobook set The Short Stories (2002-03). Two exceptions are made, compiler Tobias Wolff himself reads "The Indian Camp" (1923) and the Spanish Civil War story "Under the Ridge" (1939) is read by John Bedford Lloyd from his narration of Selected Hemingway Stories: A New Audio Collection (1939).

Although a reading by Stacy Keach exists, Wolff presumably chose to read "The Indian Camp" himself as it is
One of my favorite stories in the world. Hemingway was a baby when he wrote it, but it is a work of great sophistication. And it handles very sensational material in an absolutely unsensational way. - Introduction to "The Indian Camp" by Tobias Wolff.


Stacy Keach provides an excellent reading of the stories which is enhanced by his own association of playing the role of Ernest Hemingway several times in his life. Wolff's and Bedford's readings are excellent as well.

Trivia and Links
Stacy Keach previously played Ernest Hemingway in a 1988 TV miniseries "Hemingway" and you can still see the trailer on YouTube here.

Stacy Keach returned to performing as Ernest Hemingway in the stage play "Pamplona" in 2018, after an aborted early run in 2017. The story of that can be read at the New York Times here. ( )

Best of the Hemingway Shorts
Review of the Scribner Kindle eBook edition (March 2021) collected from various earlier publications (1923-1939) with an added introduction & commentaries

Scribner's new edition of selected Hemingway short stories is released in conjunction with the upcoming Ken Burns PBS TV documentary Hemingway (April 5-7, 2021) and is edited by Tobias Wolff with individual story commentary by Wolff and several other authors. This is an excellent 'best of' selection even though fans will inevitably lament the absence of 1 or 2 favourites (I definitely missed seeing Cat in the Rain and The Sea Change).

Over the years, I have probably read each of these a dozen times or more, but I still find new nuances to appreciate every single time. The selected commentaries were excellent as well. I especially enjoyed those by [author:Edna O'Brien|7184].
Many women feel that Hemingway hated women and wrote adversely about them. I would ask his detractors, female or male, to read this story. Could you in all honor say that this was a writer who didn’t understand women’s emotions and who hated women? —Edna O’Brien on Up in Michigan
You get a picture of the whole relationship without Hemingway spelling out the words. What’s not said is so wonderful. The control that he mastered is one of his signature strokes of genius. It’s a sad story, but Hemingway pretends not to shed a tear during it. We shed a tear. I’d like to meet Hemingway when he finished that story. I’d like him to read it to me. - Edna O’Brien on Hills Like White Elephants
One of the greatest stories I have ever read about tension, and a masterpiece of withholding. Hemingway “withheld.” It was in his genes, it was in his chemical makeup. He knew what it was to be afraid all the time and wrote about that. He gets to the heart of the matter, absolutely and unflinchingly. —Edna O’Brien on The Killers

One of the blurbs that appears before a story in this compilation mentions Hemingway's own description of his narrative methodology: He called it the "iceberg theory," in which the author should try to "tell" less, and show just what is necessary, and the reader will pick up the underlying thread of facts, emotions, and character. Two stories do this the best in my opinion here: "Hills Like White Elephants," in which the reader infers not only the subject matter under discussion (abortion), but also the entire tenor of the relationship between the two characters, mainly through dialogue, and "Soldier's Home," a title with a double (triple?) meaning, in a story that packs an emotional punch from simple descriptions of action (and inaction), and stilted dialogue.

This is Hemingway at his best. If you think you've had your fill of Hemingway in high school, this is an eye-opener. ( )
