Narrator Stacy Keach sets the perfect subdued tone for this thought-provoking collection of short stories. Keach’s narration fits Hemingway’s simple writing style with understated accents and emotions. The stories have a complexity beneath the surface that is difficult to grasp just by listening—yet listening is a pleasure. Many of the stories feature an American character named Nick Adams at different stages of his life. Other stories offer snapshots of WWI, bullfighting, horse racing, and other topics. Keach’s voice enhances the images—whether harsh, surprising, or even puzzling—without infringing on the writing. The addition of haunting music between the chapters adds to the ambience.
