The Letters of Ernest Hemingway document the life and creative development of a gifted artist and legendary personality whose work would both reflect and transform his times. Volume 1 (1907-1922) encompasses his youth, his experience in World War I and his arrival in Paris. Volume 2 (1923-1925) follows Hemingway's literary apprenticeship in expatriate Paris and the experiences that forged his earliest works, including the landmark novel The Sun Also Rises (1926). It features a never-before-published short story that was rejected by Vanity Fair. Volume 3 (1926-1929) shows a rising star as he emerges from the literary Left Bank of Paris and moves into the American mainstream. As this collection of volumes ends, Hemingway is setting off from Key West to return to Paris and standing on the cusp of celebrity as one of the major writers of his time.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This expertly edited and annotated volume will be devoured by fans eager to learn how the literary titan came into his own."
Publishers Weekly
"Bawdy, humorous, linguistically playful."
Literary Review
"The volume's 242 letters, about two-thirds previously unpublished, provide as complete an account of Hemingway's life during the Paris years as one could ask for."
Star Tribune
"For those with a passion for American literary history and an interest in the machinery of fame, these letters, ably and helpfully annotated by a team of scholars led by Sandra Spanier of Penn State University, provide an abundance of raw material and a few hours' worth of scintillating reading."
The Kansas City Star
"Never is Hemingway more fascinating or in flux than in these letters from his Paris years, that dark and dazzling confluence of literary ascendancy and personal maelstrom. Bravo to Sandra Spanier for giving us this dazzling gem of literary scholarship, and the young Hemingway in his own words - unvarnished, wickedly funny, mercilessly human."
Paula McLain, author of The Paris Wife"
"Hemingway did not want his letters published, but this carefully researched scholarly edition does them justice devotees will find this and future volumes indispensable."
Library Journal"
"This second volume of The Letters of Ernest Hemingway documents the years in which he became himself His style is at once close to and yet unutterably distant from that of his fiction."
The New York Times"
"Roughly written as they are these letters show occasional flashes of true Hemingway It is fascinating to watch the private rehearsals of what would be public performances."
The Daily Telegraph"
