Ernest Hemingway's first new book of fiction since the publication of "A Farewell to Arms" in 1929 contains fourteen stories of varying length. Some of them have appeared in magazines but the majority have not been published before. The characters and backgrounds are widely varied. "A Clean, Well-Lighted Place" is about an old Spanish Beggar. "Homage to Switzerland" concerns various conversations at a Swiss railway-station restaurant. "The Gambler, the Nun, and the Radio" is laid in the accident ward of a hospital in Western United States, and so on. Ernest Hemingway made his literary start as a short-story writer. He has always excelled in that medium, and this volume reveals him at his best.… (más)

I'm a Hemingway fan, but that doesn't mean I like everything he's done, nor all the topics he chose to write about. Nevertheless there is no denying his power as a writer. This story collection dates to 1933 and includes one of his most famous short works, "A Clean Well-lighted Place" as well as what I consider to be one of his very finest and most memorable short stories, the opener "The Short Happy Life of Frances Macomber."

In all there are 17 short stories in this collection and several to me were very minor things which keeps me from rating this book higher. Anyone who is interested in Hemingway should read this however for the better stories and to see his breadth as a writer. There is some powerful stuff in here. ( )

Despite considering myself a staunch Hemingway fan for a few years now, I've still never been entirely sold on his short stories. Winner Take Nothing came closest for me to opening my eyes to the merits of this part of his writing career. There were still a couple of duds, and the collection as a whole ran out of steam before the end (the best ones are at the start of the book), but the writing is as clean and precise as ever. It also contains the best Hemingway short story I've yet read: 'The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber.' I really liked some of the other stories – particularly 'The Capital of the World', 'After the Storm' and 'A Natural History of the Dead' – but the Macomber story was flawless, a story that epitomises all the praise which I've often heard Hemingway receive for his short stories but never really personally identified before. I may still not appreciate his short stories as much as I do his novels but Winner Take Nothing, and the Macomber story in particular, has helped me a great deal in getting there. ( )

A veried collection of Hemingway stories, it is a strong group punctuated by the absolutely brilliant 'A Clean Well-Lighted Place' which is arguably his best story ever. ( )

"The reporting in almost all these stories is superlative; the dialogue is admirable, the rapidly sketched-in picture is vivid, whole; the way of life is caught and conveyed without a hitch. . . But Hemingway has explored it beyond its worth."
 
"[The stories] ring hollow. But this need not necessarily be urged against Hemingway, for he believes . . . that we are the hollow men . . . The effect he aims at is emptiness, and to say he achieves emptiness is to praise his artistry."

"Unlike all other forms of lutte or combat the conditions are that the winner shall take nothing; neither his ease, nor his pleasure, nor any notions of glory; nor, if he win far enough, shall there be any reward within himself."

It wasn't about anything, something about making punch, and then we started fighting and I slipped and he had me down kneeling on my chest and choking me with both hands like he was trying to kill me and all the time I was trying to get the knife out of my pocket to cut him loose.
