An invaluable anthology of beloved favorites and undiscovered treasures, read by acclaimed actor and audiobook narrator John Bedford Lloyd, Selected Hemingway Stories is a must-listen for every Hemingway fan.
Ernest Hemingway did more to change the style of English prose than any other writer of his time. Publication of The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms immediately established Hemingway as one of the greatest literary lights of the twentieth century. His classic novel TheOld Man and the Sea won the Pulitzer Prize in 1953. Hemingway was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954. His life and accomplishments are explored in-depth in the PBS documentary film from Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, Hemingway. Known for his larger-than-life personality and his passions for bullfighting, fishing, and big-game hunting, he died in Ketchum, Idaho on July 2, 1961.
"Hemingway was one of the great short fiction writers of the last century, and even his least-known stories reward the listener. . . . John Bedford Lloyd captures the slightly flat tone of Hemingway's style, leaving the plain language and bare narrative to draw us in. Many of the stories draw on the author's experiences and, with Lloyd's able help, allow listeners to dig deeper into his character."
