Uncertain Times

Uncertain about everything
Ernest Hemingway, First edition of Three Stories & Ten Poems, 1923 
This copy of Hemingway’s first book claims singularity by its provenance: it was this volume that Hemingway sent to Edmund Wilson in November 1923, asking for a review in The Dial. The book had appeared in Paris, where Hemingway was already well known in expatriate circles but had made little noise in the United States. Wilson read it immediately and responded warmly with a review that helped to make the young writer’s reputation.
