A collection of eighteen vignettes from one of American literature’s greatest twentieth-century writers.


Originally composed of six vignettes commissioned by Ezra Pound, Ernest Hemingway’s In Our Time was later expanded by Hemingway himself, with the addition of twelve more short writings. These brief glimpses into the author’s life and mind portray the evolution of an artist—a writer of nonfiction testing the form’s limits, stretching his imagination, and experimenting with the “fibrous and athletic” language that would propel his novels and make its mark on literary history (The New York Times).


These are scenes of war, bullfights, brutality, and death, yet there are also moments of humor, albeit dark, and beauty. In Our Time captures a moment in a master’s career, in which we are given a hint of what is to come . . .

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.
