The 14 stories in this early collection “are as clear and crisp and perfectly shaped as icicles, as sharp as splinters of glass. It is impossible to read them without realizing that seldom if ever before has a writer been able to cut so deeply into life” (Time). Included are The Killers, Ten Indians, Today is Friday and Hills Like White Elephants. Considered among the most masterful of Hemingway's short fiction. Near Fine (Item #4563)
