First Three Stories of Ernest Hemingway

Other than the Gruesome Aesop Fables, now I’m ‘forcing myself’ to finish short stories from the Completed Short Stories of Ernest Hemingway.

The first story I attempted was The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber as it was on the first page, that I read to the finish line but got lost in the middle, (or did I not) because, in the end, it felt like I actually don’t get it.

I paused the book for two weeks before resuming by randomly opening it again as perhaps, reading cover to cover was not a good idea.

I found three stories in a row being such page-turners. A toast to the first three fictions of 2020 read by me!

Up in Michigan, On the Quai at Smyrna and Indian Camp.

I guess I’m starting to get it.

Therefore, tonight is for rereading Francis Macomber with a different perspective and expectation.
