New Hemingway Book: Art Matters

I have heard some good buzz from the Hemingway email group and Amazon about the new Hemingway book (Art Matters: Hemingway, Craft, and the Creation of the Modern Short Story) by author Robert Lamb.  The book was published by LSU Press in January 2010 and was sold out by November and is once again on sale in February on Amazon where I just ordered my copy. I saw a very positive comment on Amazon.

Here is a brief bio (from Amazon) on the author:

Robert Lamb grew up in the Kingsbridge section of the Bronx and has also lived in Hartford, Connecticut and Cambridge, Massachusetts. He received his doctorate in The History of American Civilization from Harvard University and has been a professor at Purdue University since 1991.

    Great blog, good work, I like to come here and to read everything this! I am to reread my first Hemingways and to discover others. Mr. Wood, has some reference to Portugal in the writing of Ernest Hemingway? Thank you and best regards.


    1. Hi Carlos – thank you for your nice comments and please continue to come back periodically to visit and see the new content. I did not understand your question in regard to Hemingway and Portugal? Please explain. Thanks


    2. Hi Carlos – I don’t believe I ever answered your question about Hemingway and Portugal – I know that their is some reference in his early writings about the Spanish Civil War. Were you looking for something in particular?

    Hi Michael–Thanks so much for the kind words. I’m delighted that you like it. The new book will be coming out from LSU Press next fall. Its title is “The Hemingway Short Story: A Study in Craft for Writers and Readers,” and it consists of full readings of representative stories. Take care, and have a wonderful new year–Bob
