Featuring Hemingway's only full-length play, The Fifth Column and Four Stories of the Spanish Civil War brilliantly evokes the tumultuous Spain of the 1930s.

These works, which grew from Hemingway's adventures as a newspaper correspondent in and around besieged Madrid, movingly portray the effects of war on soldiers, civilians, and the correspondents sent to cover it. He provides unique insight into how the city itself and the people within it functioned during this time of war. Through love, hate, fear, and brutality, Hemingway explores the complexities that times of war contain in his famed powerful prose.

After reading "The Paris Wife", I wanted to read some Hemingway. Not much was available at the time, so I picked this one and only read "The Fifth Column" and was not impressed. I later picked up "The Snows of Kilimanjaro" and did not like the story. I won't give up and will try one of his more famous novels. After all, he is Hemingway! I did like "Old Man and the Sea" many years ago in school.
