Book Report: Ernest Hemingway by Philip Young (1959, 1961)

This 1959 booklet (third printing in 1961) discusses Hemingway’s work from a time when he was very contemporary and explores how Hemingway’s prototypical hero evolved from the 1920s to the 1950s as Hemingway’s life progressed. Weighing in at 40 pages total, it’s a nice short refresher on Papa and almost makes me want to read The Sun Also Rises again. But that’s already on my read shelves, and I have hundreds of unread books to read first.
