Hemingway made his North American literary debut in 1925 with In Our Time, his first collection of short stories and vignettes. Widely praised at the time for what later would be considered the author's hallmark style-uncomplicated, precise language with an eye for realism-the stories' themes of alienation, loss, and grief continue the work Hemingway began earlier in his career. Includes two of his best-known Nick Adams stories: "Indian Camp" and "Big Two-Hearted River."
