Good selection. The inclusion of the Torrents of Spring alone is dubious owing to its being so unlike everything else Hemingway wrote. Still, overcoming incredulity, I enjoyed its adolescent humor.

Well, you know, it's Hemingway.
It's Hemingway...that's really all that needs to be said for many.
If you haven't read Hemingway as an adult, I urge you to do so.

Read the short stories and re-read "The Sun Also Rises". Didn't read the excerpts as I hope to read the full novels soon.
