Pete Lit's "Hemingway-A-Day"

"Pete Lit" is running a series on Hemingway's stories from The Snows of Kilimanjaro and Other Stories; Pete reads a story a day and then posts some of his reflections on the blog.

It's a great idea and should be a spur to anyone who always intends to (re-) read those stories but never seems to get around to it.

Pete briefly shares his general impression of each story as well as his qualm(s) with it. Then he throws in a passage from the story to whet your appetite.
