About the Author

ERNEST HEMINGWAY (1899-1961) was born in Illinois and began his career as a reporter before enlisting as an ambulance driver at the Italian front in World War I. Hemingway and his first (of four) wives lived in Paris in the 1920s, as part of the "Lost Generation" exapatriate community, before moving to Key West, Florida, and later to Cuba. Known first for short stories, his literary reputation was further enhanced by his novels, including A Farewell to Arms, For Whom the Bell Tolls, The Sun Also Rises, and The Old Man and the Sea.

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
