The ideal introduction to the genius of Ernest Hemingway, The Snows of Kilimanjaro and Other Stories contains ten of Hemingway's most acclaimed and popular works of short fiction. Selected from Winner Take Nothing, Men Without Women, and The Fifth Column and the First Forty-Nine Stories, this collection includes "The Killers," the first of Hemingway's mature stories to be accepted by an American periodical; the autobiographical "Fathers and Sons," which alludes, for the first time in Hemingway's career, to his father's suicide; "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber," a "brilliant fusion of personal observation, hearsay and invention," wrote Hemingway's biographer, Carlos Baker; and the title story itself, of which Hemingway said: "I put all the true stuff in," with enough material, he boasted, to fill four novels. Beautiful in their simplicity, startling in their originality, and unsurpassed in their craftsmanship, the stories in this volume highlight one of America's master storytellers at the top of his form.… (més)

It has been too long since I read anything by Hemingway. I've read a lot of the big ones, but hadn't touched his short stories. These stories are truly remarkable written by a master storyteller. I found that any one of these stories could be the basis for at least one book, and some several books. The title story - The Snows of Kilimanjaro - is jarringly real. and was written by Hemingway in 1934. The story has all his characteristic writing styles - wonderful prose, beautiful descriptions, very real characters and a plot that grabs from the beginning. But this one is a beautifully written allegory about life and death, and all completely fleshed out in about 18 pages. A true masterpiece and a signature piece for this author. Hemingway admitted that this story was one that he put his whole heart into, and it was based on his own close calls with the "Grim Reaper". He also said that he condensed four novels into the 18 pages of this story, and he held nothing back. I don't think Hemingway holds much back at all with any of his work, but Kilimanjaro brought that out very clearly. The Short Happy Life of Francis MacComber is as different from Kilimanjaro as a story can be. It tells the story of a society wife who has tired of her rich husband, and is looking for any excuse to leave him and go on. When MacComber displays his cowardice and pettiness while on an African safari, she has the perfect reason to get rid of him. I see at least two novels that could come from this story. One before the safari and one after as we see what his wife gets up to afterwards. There are a eleven other stories in this book, and they are all great, but none reach the pinnacle that Kilimanjaro does in my opinion. Hemingway is superlative when he builds stories around his own personal experiences. He was a man who lived whole-heartedly and completely. Yes, he had many faults, and he is never afraid to admit to them, and to also point them out in his work, but I am thankful that he put all this "living" to such good use and created such wonderful literature for us to enjoy.

The title story is worth the price of admission - a tale told primarily from a first person perspective as a man lays dying from gangrene during a hunting expedition in Africa. But the perspective sometimes slips into the narrator's fever-fueled delusions and reminiscences. It's a technique to which Hemingway returns in the final story - The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber, another set on an African hunting expedition - having the perspective slip into the supporting cast so that the narrator's self perception is weighed agains how others see him. The sliding perspectives make for much richer characters and story. In between, Hemingway revisits his alter-ego, Nick Adams. Nick Adams stories appear in other collection, and I found the ones in [In Our Time] superior to these. But a couple in this collection reveal the more doubtful and fearful Nick and, hence, Hemingway. In these, Nick/Hemingway are more vulnerable, more human - the Uber-masculine caricature abandoned for a truth. ( )

I'd read these stories decades ago as a youth and something told me to go back to them once again. Oddly there were no real surprises. It remains a potent if grim collection of short, sharp stories.

"In the fall the war was always there, but we did not go to it any more."

Both "A Clean, Well-Lighted Place" and "In Another Country" are still among the strongest stories I think I've ever read. My life has shown me these people and these experiences, and Hemingway nailed it. Even "The Gambler, The Nun, and the Radio" plays very familiar and even ruefully funny.

Life takes its toll, and there are ways people find to deal with it. Or, as in "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber," not to deal with it.

The real clunker here is "The Killers." I thought it stupid when I read it at 18 and, lo, I still think it stupid. Sorry, Ernie. ( )

Hemingway has this aura of brilliance about him and I always approach him expecting an invigorating, engrossing read. This collection started off dull and misogynistic l, I struggled into it thinking it must just be the character, but it didn't improve.
I guess I should just stop trying with Hemingway. ( )
