    Times Literary Supplement
  • "Flawless... such mastery of narrative, imagery and feeling, the prerequisites for great prose"

    Edna O'Brien, Guardian
  • "It seems such simple and straightforward language, but it isn't. The first chapter of A Farewell to Arms is only two and a bit pages but there is almost every variety of sentence structure. It is incredibly artful writing, and part of the art is disguising that it is artful."

    John Harvey, Guardian
  • "Essential Hemingway...a gripping account of the life of an American volunteer in the Italian army and a poignant love story."
