This brand-new audio collection from the iconic Pulitzer and Nobel Prize-winning author is a listener’s delight. The two dozen short stories presented here have never been published on audio; these new recordings of classic stories will remind listeners of Ernest Hemingway’s incomparable mastery of the short story form. 

Included are three short stories on war - by one of history’s greatest writers on the subject - that were never published in any print or audio collection before 2019: “A Room on the Garden Side”, “Indian Country and the White Army”, and “The Monument”. 

Also featured here are almost 20 stories from The Complete Short Stories of Ernest Hemingway: “One Trip Across”, “The Tradesman’s Return”, “The Denunciation”, “The Butterfly and the Tank”, “Night Before Battle”, “Under the Ridge”, “Nobody Ever Dies”, “The Good Lion”, “The Faithful Bull”, “Get a Seeing-Eyed Dog”, “A Man of the World”, “An African Story”, “A Train Trip”, “The Porter”, “Black Ass at the Cross Roads”, “Landscape with Figures”, “I Guess Everything Reminds You of Something”, “Great News from the Mainland”, and “The Strange Country”. Rounding out this audio collection are two classics from the Hemingway Library edition of The Short Stories of Ernest Hemingway: “Untitled Milan Story” and “Judgment at Manitou”. 

An invaluable anthology of beloved favorites and undiscovered treasures, read by acclaimed actor and audiobook narrator John Bedford Lloyd, Hemingway Stories is a must-listen for every Hemingway fan.

It Was a Different Time

I enjoy Hemingway, especially his short stories. Despite solid narration, I struggled to get into this book as I did with In Our Time & Nick Adams stories. And given the time in which they were written, Hemingway occasionally uses racially inappropriate terms. These pejorative words were common in their day & were used in other Hemingway stories. I don’t expect them to be cleaned up for today’s readers or listeners. Still, it was distracting to hear them spoken casually & frequently. I ended up exchanging this title for A Farewell to Arms.

Masterful Story Telling

Hemingway was a master of the short story. Concise and to the point but lacking nothing in his prose. Good production and well read.

Awesome Stories

I really enjoyed both the narrator and the stories my only qualm with this selection was a lack of organization. If instead of entitling each book as Chapter X they used the actual story name it would be easier to seperate which sorry is which because a lot of the stories have similar content. I would still recommend this selection.

The Masculine Principle

Hemingway’s writing embodies all things masculine including action, commerce, fighting, fishing, hunting, drinking and knowing. Whilst I appreciated his spare, real, gritty and frank style I found myself longing for some balance and some softening around the edges of his stories and perhaps most importantly, some cause for hope.
