A great introduction to Hemingway is through his short stories.
This collection is one of his best and showcases his writing style and brilliant storytelling.
The characters (mobsters, bullfighters, soldiers, fishermen, boxers) are all very masculine, unapologetic in their actions, and easy to understand.
The stories are raw, sometimes violent, honest, and speak directly to the male psyche.
A great book to have for short but powerful reads.
