The Nick Adams Stories
The Nick Adams Stories


Written in the 1920s and 30s, these short stories follow protagonist Nick Adams and his family through periods of his life, his jobs, and the war, from his childhood on. One story was made into the classic 40s film noir The Killers. Adams' life runs parallel to Hemingway's, gnawing on the bone of human existence: suffering, violence, dignity, hope for redemption, and death. —Recommended by Don, City Lights Books

The famous "Nick Adams" stories show a memorable character growing from child to adolescent to soldier, veteran, writer, and parent—a sequence closely paralleling the events of Hemingway's life.
