With a little distance between me and the bullfighting stories, and some humor, I am liking Hemingway more and looking forward to the second half of this massive book that has all his published short stories in chronological order.

"Upstairs the matador who was ill was lying face down on his bed alone. The matador who was no longer a novelty was sitting looking out of his window preparatory to walking out to the cafe. The matador who was a coward had the older sister of Paco in his room with him and was trying to get her to do something which she was laughingly refusing to do."

Titled "Homage to Switzerland," it seems of the Monty Python ilk. It is unlikely for Hemingway to foreshadow that band. Well, I'll be. Hemingway humorous!

As I begin this immense work, I feel as Philippe Petit must have felt as he began the high wire walk between the Twin Towers on August 7, 1974: I know I can do it but it surely is a long way. But, as has been said many times, “The longest journey begins with a single step.” So I begin.

"Up in Michigan" in 1923 when Hemingway was 23

Those are a couple of his earlier stories from 1924 and 1925. Was Nick autobiographical or based on a real person, do you know?

I thought I would read a story here and there to get the flavor but it looks like I will read the whole thing. This is my first experience with Hemingway.
