Like others in the publisher's Critical Companion series, the Hemingway volume offers a biographical chapter, followed by AZ coverage of works. The treatment of major novels is quite detailed, with brief entries for characters as well as chapter-by-chapter plot summary and some critical commentary. A second AZ section covers "Related People, Places, and Topics" that had some significance for Hemingway's life and work. Among the appendixes are a Hemingway chronology and a list of film, stage, television, and radio adaptations. Quinn, Mary Ellen
