A classic moment with good friends that’s reminiscent of a different time. Unrequited love, travel, postcards and letters, a lot of drinking, and bull fighting; what’s not to love? It's a book I've read many times, and the characters continue to grow with me. Each time I read it, and as I experience more of life, I see parts of them that move me differently. It's a good look at the humility of life--the illusions we sometimes face. Hemingway was a wonderful prose writer. A romantic he was, but the words came from such a lonely place. Rarely will you find an author who writes more beautifully about the human struggle with love, loss, separation, isolation, and politics. He is cultural sensitivity! So, I guess if it is “getting tight” you are after, proceed Hemingwayesque and say, “Have another drink!”
