Ernest Hemingway Reads “In Harry’s Bar in Venice”

Perhaps Ernest Hemingway wasn’t the best at reading literature aloud. And it’s why A.E. Hotchner once said, “one of Ernest Hemingway’s deadliest enemies was The Microphone.”

But even so, it’s worth recapturing the voice of the American literary giant – especially when we can hear him read from his  own work. The reading is called “In Harry’s Bar in Venice,” and it was recorded with a pocket recorder sometime in the late 1950s. You can access the recording (thanks to HarperAudio) in multiple formats here: .au format, .gsm format, .ra format. Or you can buy it as part of a larger collection called Ernest Hemingway Reads Ernest Hemingway.
