About the Author

Ernest Miller Hemingway was born in Chicago in 1899, the son of a doctor and the second of six children. After a stint as an ambulance driver at the Italian front, Hemingway came home to America in 1919, only to return to the battlefield - this time as a reporter on the Greco-Turkish war - in 1922. Resigning from journalism to focus on his writing instead, he moved to Paris where he renewed his earlier friendship with fellow American expatriates such as Ezra Pound and Gertrude Stein. Through the years, Hemingway travelled widely and wrote avidly, becoming an internationally recognized literary master of his craft. He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954, following the publication of The Old Man and the Sea. He died in 1961.

Reviews

A most beautiful, moving and human book * Vita Sackville-West *
A novel of great power * Times Literary Supplement *
Flawless... such mastery of narrative, imagery and feeling, the prerequisites for great prose -- Edna O'Brien * Guardian *
It seems such simple and straightforward language, but it isn't. The first chapter of A Farewell to Arms is only two and a bit pages but there is almost every variety of sentence structure. It is incredibly artful writing, and part of the art is disguising that it is artful. -- John Harvey * Guardian *
Essential Hemingway...a gripping account of the life of an American volunteer in the Italian army and a poignant love story. * Daily Express *
