Summary
"Ernest Hemingway famously said that he rewrote the ending to A Farewell to Arms thirty-nine times to get the words right. This edition collects all of the alternative endings together for the first time, along with early drafts of other essential passages, offering new insight into Hemingway?s craft and creative process and the evolution of one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century. Featuring Hemingway?s own 1948 introduction to an illustrated reissue of the novel, a personal foreword by the author?s son Patrick Hemingway, and a new introduction by the author?s grandson Se?n Hemingway, this edition of A Farewell to Arms is truly a celebration."--Amazon.com
Summary
