Stacy Keach is the perfect narrator for Hemingway's masculine stories of bullfights, fishing, boxing, and horse racing. His deep voice, theatrical flair, and apparent reverence for the writer are the perfect showcase for Hemingway's sparse prose and masterful short stories. Keach's experience in portraying Hemingway in a television series about the author adds to the understanding and depth he gives to each piece. His best performances come in reading the Nick Adams stories, some of Hemingway's finest, and through his reading of the lean dialogues Hemingway is famous for, particularly those in "The Killers." Keach takes the words of a master and makes them even more pointed in this moving collection. H.L.S. 2004 Audie Award Finalist (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 03]
