Published in 1932, Death in the Afternoon is Hemingway's masterwork on the magnificence of the art of bull-fighting. John Dos Passos praised the book as "an absolute model for how that sort of thing ought to be done," and a contemporary review in The New York Herald Tribune described it as "full of the vigor and forthrightness of the author's personality, his humor, his strong opinions—and language… In short, it is the essence of Hemingway" (Mellow, 415).
