The Short Stories of Ernest Hemingway cover
Scribner

Ernest Hemingway is rightly celebrated for his indelible novels, but the 20th century titan was writing short stories from his high school days until almost the end. Many are well known to readers, like the Nick Adams stories and The Snows of Kilimanjaro. Others not as much. Like with his most famous novels, Hemingway was an inveterate editor of his short stories, often returning to revise the text after years. Now, you can see that rigorous process play out in the Hemingway Library edition of The Short Stories, published by Scribner. The book features a foreword by Seán Hemingway, the author’s grandson and a curator at The Met.

For the last century, readers have been captivated by Ernest Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises and the story of its famed “lost generation” expats at Spain’s Festival of San Fermin — fighting alcohol, depression, impotence, and each other.
