A crease to the lower corner of front cover, scuffing to other corners, a previous owner's name and date (1993) on f/ep, some foxing to outer pages, but otherwise a good clean tight copy, with no creasing to the spine, of this soft-cover book. Hemingway's classic account of Bullfighting. 487pp including 96pp b&w illustrations.. Paperback. Good/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.


Death in the Afternoon is a non-fiction book by Ernest Hemingway about the ceremony and traditions of Spanish bullfighting. It was originally published in 1932. The book provides a look at the history and magnificence of bullfighting, while also being a deeper contemplation on the nature of fear and courage. Any discussion concerning bullfighting would be incomplete without some mention of the controversy surrounding it. -
