Pfeiffer, Gerhard and Martina König. “‘The Bill Always Came’: Hemingway’s Use of Epiphany in ‘Cross Country Snow.’” Hemingway Review 16, no. 1 (Fall 1996): 97-101.

Annotation

Notes the significance of the Swiss woodcutters as instrumental for the reader’s epiphany at the end of the story. Highlights the importance of the often-overlooked unpaid bill as symbolic of Nick’s unwillingness to pay his debt as a father. Briefly addresses payment as a theme in The Sun Also Rises, A Moveable Feast, and A Farewell to Arms.
