Publisher's Summary

When In Our Time was published in 1925, it was praised by Ford Madox Ford, John Dos Passos, and F. Scott Fitzgerald for its simple and precise use of language to convey a wide range of complex emotions. It earned Hemingway a place beside Sherwood Anderson and Gertrude Stein as the most promising American writers of the period.

In Our Time contains several early Hemingway classics, including the famous Nick Adams stories "Indian Camp", "The Doctor and the Doctor's Wife", "The Three Day Blow", and "The Battler". It also introduces listeners to the hallmarks of the Hemingway style: a lean, tough prose, enlivened by an ear for the colloquial and an eye for the realistic that suggests, through the simplest of statements, a sense of moral value and a clarity of heart.

Now recognized as one of the most original short-story collections in 20th-century literature, In Our Time also provides a key to Hemingway's later works.

    "Unabridged reading by Stacy Keach"

    This is a great reading by Stacy Keach of Hemingway's first book. Audible is listing this as Abridged (as of March 2011, they may correct it later) but it is actually complete with all of the 16 short stories and the 16 vignettes as in the printed Scribner editions.

    "Astonishing."

    Stacy Keach brings Hemingway's characters and narrative to life with a depth and dimension which must surely mirror the author's intent. Applause all around.
