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.

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. (Meaning if your only Hemingway experience was reading in school for book reports and the like, ug...try again as an adult reading for pleasure.) Maybe he was a drunk womanizer, maybe he was a scared mentally ill writer, likely he was all of the above...whatever the case, the man could tell a story.

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.
