Hemingday: A Book List

Hemingday (Hemingway's birthday) is coming up on July 21! We plan on celebrating with beverages provided by Spec's Wines, Spirits, and Finer Foods and themed activities. In the meantime, here are books by and about Hemingway to get you in the mood.

Keaton says: "I probably would have to choose THE SUN ALSO RISES as my favorite Hemingway book, but I really think he’s at his best in the short story. Never has there been such a talented and influential writer who has written so many bad books and novels. Especially later in his career I think that has to do with his dissolution due to mental illness and alcoholism for sure. But I think his lasting and most influential contribution to literature is the short story. Also a must-read: his biographies! Reading about his real life is just as interesting if not more than his actual works."

Mark says: "FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS is a perfect blend of literature and historical fiction." 

Sara says: "I love the brand new Hemingway Library Edition annotated short stories book, out today. I encountered Hemingway for the first time as a student, as I'm sure many did, and couldn't stand my experience. His static secondary-school manifestation is, admittedly, pretty lame. He was extremely vibrant, and this book allows readers to envision that. Pick up this book. Page through his rough drafts, first editions, and edits. See him as Hemingway the cultural icon, and also Hemingway the editor, writer, and explorer."

Joy says: "I like A FAREWELL TO ARMS, because it's a workout book." *flexes*
