Ernest Miller Hemingway was an American novelist, short story writer, and journalist. His economical and understated style had a strong influence on 20th-century fiction, while his life of adventure and his public image influenced later generations. He published seven novels, six short story collections, and two non-fiction works. Additional works, including three novels, four short story collections, and three non-fiction works, were published posthumously. Many of his works are considered classics of American literature. He won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954 and Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1953. Winner Take Nothing was Ernest Hemingway's third collection of short stories to be published by a US publisher. It appeared four years after his most recent book of fiction, A Farewell to Arms, and a year after his non-fiction bullfighting treatise, Death in the Afternoon. The characters, the dialogue, the settings, the remarkable insight could have come only from Hemingway's imagination. As an introduction to his work, or as an overview of the themes he developed at greater length in his novels, it is a stunningly successful collection. Hunters, wives, old men of wisdom, waiters, fighters, women loved, women lost: they are all here, living on the raw edge, making love, facing the inevitable reality of death.
