The Snows of Kilimanjaro

by Ernest Hemingway

CD-Audio Publication Date: 29/01/2008

RRP  $27.99 $25.90
"It came with a rush; not as a rush of water nor of wind; but of a sudden evil-smelling emptiness. . ."

A flamboyant, hard-drinking, ruthless, and womanizing world adventurer comes face-to-face with the one antagonist he cannot conquer: his own ignoble and imminent death. . . .

Written in 1938, The Snows of Kilimanjaro is a classic distillation of the themes Ernest Hemingway obsessively explored throughout his writing career. When Harry, the central character, goes on safari to "work the fat off his mind," his ambitions are cut short when a terrible accident leaves him facing his ultimate death and weighing the meaning of his life. Hemingway's brilliant prose is given a penetrating and moving reading by Charlton Heston in an audio that only deepens in meaning with each listening.

Ernest Hemingway

American novelist and short story writer Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961) received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954. Succinct and lucid in his prose style, he exercised an enormous influence over English-language authors of the 20th century.

A member of the expatriate Lost Generation circle, Hemingway cultivated a larger-than-life image of vigorous masculinity complemented by an intense sensitivity.

He drew upon his adventures as a big-game hunter, bullfighter, and fisherman for his fiction as well as his service as a WWI ambulance driver and a reporter during the Spanish Civil War and WWII.
