Indian Camp by Ernest Hemingway, reading by Tom O'Bedlam
What a gorgeous 1500 word story, early in his career, that established Ernest Hemingway as a great American author. Concise, impactful. So many layers to this story. The wisdom of the father, the innocence of Nick. The first Hemingway short story that presages the future for "Papa" Hemingway, when Nick asks his father about suicide and death.
With great appreciation for SpokenVerse, Tom O'Bedlam. Check out his youtube channel for many eloquent readings here:
