MEN WITHOUT WOMEN. (1927). Ernest Hemingway. ****.
This was Hemingway’s second book of short stories. It includes “The Undefeated,” “In Another Country,” “Hills Like White Elephants,” The Killers,” “Che Ti Dice La Patria?” “Fifty Grand,” “A Simple Enquiry,” “Ten Indians,” “A Canary For One,” “An Alpine Idyll,” “A Pursuit Race,” “Today is Friday,” “Banal Story,” and “Now I Lay Me.” Most of these were originally published in Scribner’s Magazine. The most famous of these stories, and the most anthologized, is “The Killers.” At least one film was based on this story, and starred Burt Lancaster and Ava Gardner. I should probably say loosely based. The stories are, in themselves, mostly top drawer. They are a popular vehicle for the study of Hemingway’s writing style, since it shows more clearly in shorter pieces. If you are new to Hemingway, this collection would be a good place to start. Recommended.
