2014 Book #27: The Torrents of Spring

2014 Book #27: The Torrents of Spring

What a bizarre little novella! I was expecting a run-of-the-mill (short) Hemingway novel, and I got…birds living in shirts? The Torrents of Spring is so un-Hemingway-like that I stopped several times and just stared at the pages, thinking...
