    A mixed bag of short stories, mostly very good ones, in a variety of settings The one thing the stories have in common is that they re all mind blowingly downbeat as the title implies , even by Hemingway standards Desolation, loneliness, despair, brutality they re all here, and they brought all of their friends and relatives along for the ride.I m always amazed by the way Hemingway explored the heroic and the hopeful in his novels, but zoomed in so tightly on life s dark side in his short stories

    I picked up a Hemingway book after nearly 30 years And yet he was a formative influence on me as a writer The book reinforced to me that dialogue is everything , nobody wins, but everyone changes, punctuation needs to be used for rhythm, actions are harder to describe indirectly but are powerful when done that way, word repetitions are okay if they create effect, passive voice for scene setting is okay, and sentences that run along like this one are great all taboos with today s writing schools and editors To his credit, Hemingway may have pleased the pundits with his technique, which is 99% show rather than tell.Many of the scenes in this collection centre around a bar or restaurant with plenty of alcohol to oil the wheels The time shift in a scene set in a Swiss restaurant, a scene that seems to repeat itself over and over again, is only indicated by the changing of the room s decor Normal people are contrasted with conflicted ones,the horrors of war are described in indirect but dramatic detail the dead always have out turned pockets and papers scattered abouth them, in addition to flies , teenagers have sex in the woods and the reader discovers this only in the dialogue occuring around the event Hemingway is audacious by having the characters in a story set in Wyoming run through most of their dialogue in French however the structure and content was such that this anglophone got it He frequently uses a panoramic viewpoint, focussing on an entire scene before zooming down to a character s POV within it very cinematic And his characters sometimes do not have names, nor are we clear of their sex all part of his minimalistic technique But he is still able to create memorable atmoshere out of the most original situations the shell shocked soldier roaming the battlefront, the couple breaking up in a Paris restaurant, the boy and his father hunting in the woods, the scavenging sailor seeking his pot of gold in a wreck just out of reach, the three whores in a railway station, the self absorbed bullfighter, the gambler suffering from gangerene with a bullet in his belly, and the nun praying to God that her favourite baseball team wins.I felt liberated reading this book and wanted to raise a glass with Papa Hem if he was still alive saying, Damn those who try to teach us to write Writing comes from within, let no writing instructor, editor or publisher put us under.

    This collection of short stories was first published in 1933, 4 years after he wrote Farewell to Arms It includes one of my all time favorite stories, A Clean Well Lighted Place That story s dialogue between two waiters who are waiting for their last customer, a lonely, deaf old man, to leave is simple, straightforward, and short but says about loneliness, compassion, estrangement, and empathy than any novel fifty times as long The Light of the World is another story that is almost dialogue, most taking place at a train station between Hemingway s alter ego character, Nick Adams, his friend, and others waiting for a train including five prostitutes I ve read this story many times and have never figured out which prostitute, if either, was telling the truth about a relationship with a famed prizefighter Jack Johnson is discussed in the story a jarring reminder that this story was written in a different time and certainly without any racial enlightenment A Way You ll Never Be is another Nick Adams story ,a war story that is another example that the real Hemingway stories about war are so much different than the Hemingway reputation for macho stories glorifying war As with most of his war stories, this does not write of actual battles but of the aftermath of battles already fought and the foreboding of battles to come A Day s Wait is only 3 pages long but says so much about fatherhood and has such a nice humorous ending Fathers and Sons is another favorite story of mine Nick Adams is driving with his young son with Hemingway describing the landscape as they talk of hunting and Nick s dad, sparking Nick s nostalgic memories of growing up in Michigan, all tied up in a way only Hemingway could do

    The Sea Change This story represents much that Hemingway is great at, distilled to its most fundamental He makes us feel his characters in a heart beat The Sea Change is three and a half pages, yet we know almost everything we need to know about Phil and the Girl instantly, and Hemingway makes us care.He also expresses setting so perfectly and sparingly that we feel we re in this tiny bar in Paris, yet the description of the bar is implied, mirrored in his descriptions of the couple and James the bartender Who they are, how they look, how they behave, gives us most of the goods on the bar, and the two additional clients, with their brief interruption of proceedings, give us all the rest we need The bar is airy and small and private James is close to his clientele, a trusted barkeep in the traditional mode There is rich wood throughout and a zinc bar with mirrors behind Phil stares into those mirrors and sees the change that is in him.Which is the other thing Hemingway does so well he expresses the change in people, and the moments that change them, better than any other As Phil s Love asks his blessing to conduct an affair with the woman she loves, Phil feels himself responding as society prescribes He is angry He threatens violence He is wounded and tries to wound her with guilt and recrimination But he loves her too much, and the prescription is overthrown He is accepting, quickly accepting, and therein lies The Sea Change He is not the prescribed male he thought he was His comfort is rocked, not by his Lover s infidelity for what can that really mean in a world where love cannot be controlled , but by his realization that he is not the man he tried to be He looks in the mirror and his true self is revealed beneath the unchanged image that stares back It s a pretty powerful message in three and a half pages I wish I could do that.

    Winner Take Nothing was Hemingway s third major collection of short stories, published in 1933 between his two non fiction works, Death in the Afternoon and The Green Hills of Africa By the 1930s, Hemingway had lost much of his luster with the literary critics With the publication of this third collection, many of the prestigious of the critics began to characterize some of his writing as tedious, repetitious and uninteresting Hemingway, now universally recognized as the master of the short story, may have included in this volume several not so memorable pieces but overall the stories continue to challenge and inform.Death and or aging are major themes A Clean, Well Lighted Place God Rest You Merry Gentlemen A Natural History of the Dead reprinted from Death in the Afternoon A Day s Wait Fathers and Sons Three deal with Nick Adams The Light of the World places Nick in Michigan as a curious teenager A Way You ll Never Be sees Nick in Italy after he has been wounded Fathers and Sons encounters Nick as an adult remembering his Father Love or rather marginalized love runs through several The Sea Change The Mother of the Queen One Reader Writes Nor does Hemingway ignore the have nots, the unfortunate, the lonely After the Storm Homage to Switzerland Wines of Wyoming The Gambler, the Nun, and the Radio.As is so typical of his earlier work, the writing is sparse and suggestive, showing an amazing facility with dialogue And there are always within the stories links to his own life to the people, places and incidents that forged his own private and public worlds Although the stories stand alone, knowing something of Hemingway s biography adds other dimensions to his fiction.
