Overview

A strikingly original collection of short stories and accompanying vignettes that marked Ernest Hemingway’s American debut.When In Our Time was first published in 1925, it was widely praised for its simple and precise use of language to convey a wide range of complex emotions, and earned Hemingway a place among the most promising American writers of that period. In Our Time contains several early Hemingway classics, including the famous Nick Adams stories “Indian Camp” and “The Three Day Blow,” and introduces readers to the hallmarks of the Hemingway style: a lean, tough prose, enlivened by an ear for the colloquial and an eye for the realistic. His writing suggests, through the simplest of statements, a sense of moral value and a clarity of vision. Now recognized as one of the most important short story collections of twentieth-century literature, In Our Time provides key insights into Hemingway’s later works.

Reviews
"Hemingway's language is fibrous and athletic, colloquial and fresh, hard and clean... he packs a whole character into a phrase, an entire situation into a sentence or two. He makes each word count three or four ways." -The New York Times "There's something immortal about these short pieces. They are absolute miracles of prose, of description, of evocation. They take you there." -Edna O'Brien "Ernest Hemingway is a new, honest, un-literary transcriber of life - a Writer." -Time
