The Dangerous Summer book. The Dangerous Summer is, I believe, the last manuscript that Hemingway worked on in its totality before his death in 1961. The work is based on the 1959 mano-a-mano between Antonio Ordóñez and Luis Miguel Dominguín. Hemingway not only chronicled the competition between the two Spanish bullfighters but also his own experiences in Spain during the 1959 bullfighting season as he crisscrossed the country from Andalucía in the south to Cataluña in the northeast and points in-between.

The Dangerous Summer is also a book that acknowledges the brutality of bullfighting, and undoubtedly helped bring . And as Hemingway’s biographer Carlos Baker has written: The estate reminded Ernest of the Finca, except that it was larger and older.

The Dangerous Summer is also a book that acknowledges the brutality of bullfighting, and undoubtedly helped bring forth new howls of displeasure and criticism of bullfighting as a sport: when it was never presented as a sport and was never considered by the Spanish as a sport, which it is not. Such had always been the case. Davis defended his privacy with two gates, each manned by a pair of servants. The large white house had been built in 1835.

The Dangerous Summer is Hemingway's firsthand chronicle of a brutal season of bullfights. In this vivid account, Hemingway captures the exhausting pace and pressure of the season, the camaraderie and pride of the matadors, and the mortal drama as in fight after fight the rival matadors try to outdo each other with ever more daring performances. At the same time Hemingway offers an often complex and deeply personal self-portrait that reveals much about one of the twentieth century's preeminent writers.

This is one of Hemingway's last works edited from a much longer and one suspects overly indulgent magazine article. His posthumous overblown novels, published after his death, could have benefited from such judicious editing. A great deal of Hemingways' remarkable genius, trimmed to the bone, is on display here: for one, his unequalled talent for description of place and action. Even those who disapprove of bullfighting as a sport will come to understand the intricacies of the then dying art that the author venerated with almost juvenile adoration. The personalities, particularly the Spaniards, are drawn with great sympathy and clarity, and one is is quickly immersed in the business as well as the artistry of the fight. Unlike his later works Poppa is only a secondary figure here. He pays just tribute to two great matadors worthy of his and our admiration.

A very interesting account of a controversial subject.

For me, there are only two reservations. The first is Hemingway's enormous ego. He can never resist the urge to tell you how much he knows about bullfighting and how close he is to famous matadors and other bullfighting people. Perhaps it was true, but we don't need to be told so often. The second reservation concerns Hemingway's style. I know that many very good writers have cited him as their biggest influence. They praise him for his 'terse' style and short, powerful sentences. I've never been able to understand why. He writes just as many sentences that are long, convoluted and difficult to follow. It isn't uncommon to have to go back to the start of a sentence to find out what or who he is talking about.

If you've already made up your mind that you hate bullfighting, don't read The Dangerous Summer. If you like it or have an open mind, you might find this book interesting. I did.

I loved this book. Very well written of course, you'd expect nothing less from Hemingway. The art of bull fighting is totally explained including the meaning of all foreign words. The story centers around the career of several men. It's interesting, and informative. Goes along with my favorite book, "Death In The Afternoon."
This book is pure Hemingway.

Fortunately I had read Death in the Afternoon before absorbing this last encore. By the end, I was attached at the soul to both matadors, (Cain and Abel!?). I wish I could read the other 50,000 words edited from this work. Papa described everything that was behind the fragile curtain of honor, bravado, showmanship, and the pageantry of bullfighting. Like many musicians or athletes of our time, we cannot observe from behind the scenes all the work, travel and lack of sleep that these people go through, therefore we cannot fully appreciate the bullfighters of the "Lost Generation". I recommend this book to anyone who wants to experience this true American literary icon and Spanish culture and History. It is interesting to see the way Spain has changed over the years. This book is full of magic and it describes the drive and mild competitiveness that all men and women should have inside in order to suceed in today's harsh world. The introduction of James A. Michener is beautifully written by someone who knew Spain. The terms are helpful to any who is not familiar with basic bullfighting. This is one of Papa's most under-appreciated least-recognized works, but that's ok with me.

Hemingway’s story lines are always solid but the dialogue between characters is a bit much. Did people (especially his female characters!) really talk that way ??

During his college years my older brother spent an entire day
with Ernest Hemingway in Africa. Our(N.Y.)home contained a library
and every book of Papa Hemingway's was on a "special" shelf so I began
reading his novels from my elementary years. Long time now & I needed
to return to GREAT AMERICAN novels - how can one avoid re-reading
Hemingway? A wonderful book. I also ventured out to Spain several
times to retrace the bull rings, restaurants (Botin in old Madrid)
& parts of that great country, pretending it was 40 years earlier.
You canNOT do this with many authors, but with "Papa" one can go
back in time. ALL his books are excellent reading.
Thanx to Amazon great novels are easilly gotten to!

Some sections of quality writing interspersed throughout. Most importantly, I felt, I got to see some of Hemingway's personality, prejudice and hubris show through. I am fascinated by the man, and his inner life, and this piece was another opportunity to see a glimpse of who he was.
It's a great read. I termed it "predictable" only because when you buy it you'll know exactly what it's about. Sure, it's got surprises. Sure, the characters are complex (as well as "developed"). It's a Hemingway book. Always good.
