All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer.
- Ernest Hemingway
The Little Book of Hemingway provides an eloquent, concise (21,000 word) summary of Ernest Hemingway's life and writings, as well as the best criticism of his work through the decades.
Drawing from the the most respected Hemingway scholarship by leading researchers and writers, Nicole Valaire offers an incisive, focused consideration of Hemingway's meanings and methods, thus presenting a vivid and valuable "crash-course" on, and introduction to, the most important and influential American writer of the 20th century.
Beautifully illustrated, The Little Book of Hemingway includes a complete biographical sketch of the author, summaries of the plots and themes of each of his novels (as well as his major works of nonfiction), consideration of his most important short stories, a history of the fluctuating tides in Hemingway criticism, a detailed filmography, and an extensive bibliography of works by and about Hemingway.
The Little Book of Hemingway represents the ideal introduction to an author who changed the language of storytelling forever: Hemingway the man, writer and artist.
Nicole Valaire holds a degree in comparative literature from Yale University. After a number of years in Manhattan publishing, she is now a freelance writer. Ms. Valaire lives with her family in Jackson, Mississippi.
