Annotation

Kidder, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Soul of a New Machine (1981), comments on Hemingway’s collected stories: “At its best, his prose is far from simple, but to me it made the writing part of being a writer seem like the easy part. Once you’d performed heroic deeds—or, for the time being, imagined yourself performing them—you just told your story in declarative sentences strung together with lots of ands.”
