Product Description

From Booklist

Like others in the publisher's Critical Companion series, the Hemingway volume offers a biographical chapter, followed by A–Z 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 A–Z 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

Both public and academic libraries should find this title a strong addition to their reference collection and some may want to add a circulating copy as well." - Booklist "An absolute goldmine for Hemingway aficionados that is long overdue. Highly recommended." - Library Journal"
