The Nick Adams Stories by Ernest Hemingway (c1972)

This book compiles and places into chronological order all of Hemingway's short stories (eight of which were found after his death and previously unpublished) that feature his "everyman/self" character Nick Adams. Many of these stories showcase the author at his best and fully justify his place among the literary heavyweights. Especially strong are those that take place where Hemingway spent his boyhood summers in the cabins, woods and waters of northern Michigan. If you haven't read Hemingway before (or like me hadn't read him in quite some time) this is a great place to start (or jump back in). Check catalog for availability.
