A Farewell to Arms

Paperback

Price: $16.00

Overview

The greatest American novel to emerge from World War I, “A Farewell to Arms” cemented Ernest Hemingway’s reputation as one of the most important novelists of the twentieth century. Drawn largely from Hemingway’s own experiences, it is the story of a volunteer ambulence driver wounded on the Italian front, the beautiful British nurse with whom he falls in love, and their journey to find some small sanctuary in a world gone mad with war. By turns beautiful and tragic, tender and harshly realistic, “A Farewell to Artms” is one of the supreme literary achievements of our time.

Reviews
"I think A Farewell to Arms is Hemingway's greatest novel, the truest. It's also heartbreaking."
–Edna O'Brien

"We can't seem to stop using a certain kind of elevated, heroic language about war and it is our duty always to puncture it. No one has ever done that as eloquently as Hemingway, through the accumulating weight of his sentences, and the emotional clarity, the disgust and also the reverence for what has been done."
–Tobias Wolff
