The now-famous "Nick Adams" stories show a memorable character growing from child to adolescent to soldier, veteran, writer, and parent -- a sequence closely paralleling the events of Hemingway's life. In this arrangement Nick Adams emerges clearly as the first in a long line of Hemingway's fictional selves. Later versions were all to have behind them part of Nick's history and, correspondingly, part of Hemingway's. This is a must-have for fans of the iconic author.

Rotting Hill / Wyndham Lewis. - Santa Barbara : Black Sparrow Press, 1986. - 352, [3] s. ; 23 cm.
The stories in this book are in fact one story, that of a society adrift, like a shipwrecked crew upon a raft: fifty million people upon a wet and windy island in the Atlantic Ocean. Half of the inhabitants of Great Britain have been sold a patent medicine of peculiar austerity. Some of the characters in these stories complain of this medicine: but there is a far worse corrective others maintain, namely the Red Pills of Old Uncle Joe. The social medicines of the 'kindly' British spare you from the necessity of taking Old Uncle Joe's Red Pills.
