Spanning the years 1920 to 1956, this priceless collection shows Hemingway's work as a reporter, from correspondent for the Toronto Star to contributor to Esquire, Colliers, and Look. As fledgling reporter, war correspondent, and seasoned journalist, Hemingway provides access to a range of experiences, including vivid eyewitness accounts of the Spanish Civil War and World War II. By-Line: Ernest Hemingway offers a glimpse into the world behind the popular fiction of one of America's greatest writers.
"Reconciling literature and action, he fulfilled for all writers, the sickroom dream of leaving the desk for the arena, and then returning to the desk. He wrote good and lived good, and both activities were the same."
"In journalism too, no one wrote like Hemingway."
David Rosenthal, Walla!
"This collection of reports by Hemingway reflects his tremendous talent as an author, journalist, commentator and adventurer. It mainly highlights his love of life, and pursuit of death."
Netta Halperin, Israel Hayom
"Hemingway always knew how to describe war better than anyone else. Read "Wings Always Over Africa: An Ornithological Letter" (Esquire, January 1936) "
"For whom the cannon tolls - With near-mystical timing, this week has seen the publication of By-Line, the Hebrew-language translation of journalistic reports by Ernest Hemingway, one of the greatest authors of the 20th century. Hemingway's journalistic work brought him to all the major battlefields, from where he sent his dispatches, sparing no details and without censorship."
Ran Bin-Noon, Yedioth Aharonot

"Hemingway is among the greatest writers of all time, and all that is left for the reviewer is to cling to his greatness in hope that she will maybe write a bit like him."
