    ?That's all we do, isn't it -- look at things and try new drinks?? Men Without Women is a collection of stories by Ernest Hemingway. It includes such classics as "Hills Like White Elephants", "Fifty Grand", "The Killers", and "In Another Country." I listened to this collectio...

    ?So it?s a town full of bright boys.? ?The Killers Joseph Wood Krutch called the stories in Men Without Women "Sordid little catastrophes" involving "very vulgar people,? an assessment I find that observation ungenerous and vulgar in its own way, to miss the subtley and el...

    An Alpine Idyll -- The most striking image from any story in Hemingway's Men Without Women is that of the peasant man chopping and gathering wood in the lantern light, with the lantern dangling from the open mouth of his dead and frozen wife. It is such a fitting image, considering ...

    I'm not especially keen on short stories: if they're good, I can't read too many in quick succession because it's disorienting, and if they're not good... I don't really want to read them. It may be blasphemous to many, but this collection was in the latter camp, hence it took me a ...

    An early collection of Hemingway stories that show the range he would employ in his longer works. The more famous "Hills Like White Elephants" and "The Killers" are included in this volume. "Now I Lay Me" was a new story for me and was my favorite of the bunch. ...

    There is this story from Hemingway called 'Hills like white elephants' and my English teacher gave it to me when I was 16. It is still one of the best pieces of literature I have ever read. I give it to my students as well, not to all of them, but to adults and those who can intellectu...

    My first taste of Hemingway and his much praised writing style. The stories from this collection, and especially The Killers, are very good examples of slice of life narratives. I love how backstory is implied for the characters and events and every story leaves you contemplating what ...

    What rock have I been under? I had no idea there were short stories within Men Without Women, this small book of 137 pages. I had just finished For Whom the Bell Tolls and found this book. I thought, ?Oh, Ernest Hemingway, I?ll like this novella. I will read it quickly to add to my...

    I'm not good at short stories. It is a literary form that has eluded me, just as the story gets good; it ENDS! Hemingway writes short stories that feel like snap shots; you see the young couple in the cafe, the boy trying to contain his broken heart, the injured soldiers. But the cont...

    I'm not really sure I see Hemingway's brilliance just yet. An idea or a quote will flit through when you least expect it and then the spark just goes out. I love how he strips his stories of everything but the bare fundamentals, and sets it so that you never know what the story actual...

    Published in 1927, this is Hemingway's 2nd group of short stories. This collection contains 14 stories and these were quite good. Of course there is a story about bullfighting and one about boxing, as you would expect. But they've got that Hemingway flair or style that is unique and ve...

    Hemingway was born into a period when men were still fully expected to indulge in manly sports such as fishing and fighting and watching animals getting massacred in entertaining ways (all of which were presumably improved if there was a handy cerveza or scotch to hand). A time when me...

    What an intriguing title! And what a fascinating cover/illustration. If you look closely, there appears to be one woman in the crowd, but her eyes are blocked from the action by a rope around the boxing ring. (We're approaching thesis territory about titles of books, but I digress.) An...
