In Our Time

Book cover
By: (1899-1961)

In Our Time by Ernest Hemingway is a collection of short stories that provides a stark and unflinching look at the experiences of the "lost generation" following World War I. Hemingway's minimalist style and precise language create a sense of quiet devastation that is both haunting and powerful.

The stories in this collection are brief yet impactful, painting a vivid picture of the disillusionment and trauma faced by those who lived through the war. Hemingway's characters grapple with the loss of innocence, the brutality of war, and the numbing effects of violence on the human soul.

Despite their brevity, each story resonates deeply with the reader, evoking a sense of empathy and understanding for the characters' struggles. Hemingway's writing is spare and unadorned, yet incredibly evocative, capturing the emotional essence of his characters with remarkable precision.

Overall, In Our Time is a profound and moving collection that explores the complexities of human experience with depth and honesty. Hemingway's masterful prose and keen insight into the human condition make this a must-read for fans of modern literature.

Book Description:
This is the first edition of Hemingway's in our time, published in a very small run in France in 1924. And American edition was released the following year. There are 18 brief short stories---one might say vignettes---that demonstrate the author's early interests and his increasingly iconic literary style. - Summary by KevinS
