Specifically, it includes "The Undefeated," "In Another Country," "Hills like White Elephants," "The Killers," "Che ti dice la Patria?," "Fifty Grand," "A Simple Enquiry," "Ten Indians," "A Canary for One," "An Alpine Idyll," "A Pursuit Race," "To-Day is Friday," "Banal Story," and "Now I Lay Me." Men Without Women was influenced by Hemingway's travels throughout Europe in the 1920s, with many stories set in Spain and Italy. In classic Hemingway fashion, this early collection also addresses the themes of World War I, bullfighting, and boxing.
