Praise for Men Without Women (Vintage Classics)
“[Hemingway] shows himself master in a new manner in the short story form. . . . Hemingway is the supreme reporter. His facts may be from experience, and they may be compounded solely from imagination, but he so presents them that they stand out with all the clearness and sharpness (and also the coldness) of pinnacles of ice in clear, frosty air.” —The New York Times
