Now a Scribner Classics Edition, "Hemingway on Fishing" is the first and only collection of the Nobel Prize-winning author's writings on America's great passion - fishing. The book is introduced and edited by Nick Lyons with a foreword by Jack Hemingway.
From childhood on, Ernest Hemingway was a passionate fisherman. He fished the lakes and creeks near his family's summer home at Walloon Lake, Michigan, and his first stories and reportage were often about his favorite sport. Here, collected for the first time in one volume, are all of his great writings about the many kinds of fishing he did - from trout in the rivers of northern Michigan to marlin in the Gulf Stream.
"Hemingway on Fishing" is a rich, diverse, and captivating collection of the great novelist's writing about fishing - and includes fascinating photographs. From the early Nick Adams stories and the memorable chapters on fishing the Irati River in "The Sun Also Rises" to such late novels as "Islands in the Stream," this collection traces the evolution of a great writer's passion; the range of his interests; the sure uses he made of fishing, transforming it into the stuff of great literature. An important collection to be treasured, this is the perfect book for anglers, Hemingway fans, and lovers of great literature. 272 pages. Made in USA.
