Annotation

Recounts the compositional history, including biographical background, of three stories purported to be written on the same day, “The Killers,” “Ten Indians,” and “Today is Friday,” connecting all three through the theme of betrayal. Provides a close reading of the crucifixion story and its connection to the other short stories in Men Without Women. Concludes that it reflects Hemingway’s guilt regarding his unfaithfulness to wife Hadley and relationships with his father and God.
