CLASSIC SHORT STORIES FROM THE MASTER OF AMERICAN FICTION
First published in 1927, Men Without Women represents some of Hemingway's most important and compelling early writing. In these fourteen stories, Hemingway begins to examine the themes that would occupy his later works: the casualties of war, the often uneasy relationship between men and women, sport and sportsmanship. In "Banal Story," Hemingway offers a lasting tribute to the famed matador Maera. "In Another Country" tells of an Italian major recovering from war wounds as he mourns the untimely death of his wife. "The Killers" is the hard-edged story about two Chicago gunmen and their potential victim. Nick Adams makes an appearance in "Ten Indians," in which he is presumably betrayed by his Indian girlfriend, Prudence. And "Hills Like White Elephants" is a young couple's subtle, heartwrenching discussion of abortion. Pared down, gritty, and subtly expressive, these stories show the young Hemingway emerging as America's finest short story writer.

Is it possible to read Hemingway with anything like objectivity? Probably not. His image/persona, which you may like or dislike (I'm in the latter camp), is inseparable from his work and colors it. That said, this short story collection, originally published in 1927, is a good place to start for the novice and contains some of his best-loved stories: "Hills Like White Elephants," "The Killers" and "In Another Country." Perhaps the oddest entry isn't a story but a brief play about Roman soldiers who were at Christ's crucifixion.
