A strikingly original collection of short stories and accompanying
vignettes that marked Ernest Hemingway’s American debut. When In Our Time
was first published in 1925, it was widely praised for its simple and
precise use of language to convey a wide range of complex emotions, and
earned Hemingway a place among the most promising American writers of that
period. In Our Time contains several early Hemingway classics, including
the famous Nick Adams stories “Indian Camp” and “The Three Day Blow,” and
introduces readers to the hallmarks of the Hemingway style: a lean, tough
prose, enlivened by an ear for the colloquial and an eye for the realistic.
His writing suggests, through the simplest of statements, a sense of moral
value and a clarity of vision. Now recognized as one of the most important
short story collections of twentieth-century literature, In Our Time
provides key insights into Hemingway’s later works.
