This review of Ernest Hemingway's short story, "The Three Day Blow," highlights the friendship between the two main characters. The reviewer focuses on the limitations of the relationship between Nick and Bill. The reviewer considers the two men's conversations about baseball and books and their deliberate avoidance of meaningful discussions. In particular Nick avoids discussing his relationship with Marjorie, the girlfriend he had just broken up with. The author concludes this avoidance shows that Nick felt he had to hide his true feelings about Marjorie to maintain his relationship with Bill.
