Just re read Hemmingways masterpiece, a wonderful account of Pamplonas San Fermin running of the bulls between the wars. Hemmngway is a writer with style, and leaves so much unsaid.
A must read for all, strongly recommended.

Good call John
I will try and find an eBook copy and include it in the BOTM vote in the reading room.

A great writer and l am about to re read this too. I recently got eight of his books through The Book People for amazing 8 delivered in the U.K. I Am sure they would send them to Spain.....for a little extra cost. In the set there is also Death in the Afternoon, a story which may shed some light on what the Spanish see in bullfighting. His greatest book however, is For Whom the Bell Tolls surely the best novel to come out of the Spanish Civil war.
Unbeatable value........

I read   For whom the bell tolls;The snows of Kilimanjaro;Fiesta ;The short happy life of Francis Macomber;
Across the River & into the Trees; The Old Man & the Sea, all this summer whilst in the UK. Thought I must be missing something as none did anything for me. I had to force myself to continue reading them,assuming they'd improve.
I was looking forward to them as well so was disappointed to say the least.

I am so glad you said that Gus. I too, am left cold by his writing.  Really disappointed.
