It's the early 1920s in Paris, and Jake, a wounded World War I veteran working as a journalist, is hopelessly in love with charismatic British socialite Lady Brett Ashley. Brett, however, settles for no one: an independent, liberated divorcée, all she wants out of life is a good time. When Jake, Brett, and a crew of their fellow expatriate friends travel to Spain to watch the bullfights, both passions and tensions rise. Amid the flash and revelry of the fiesta, each of the men vies to make Brett his own, until Brett’s flirtation with a confident young bullfighter ignites jealousies that set their group alight.
An indelible portrait of what Gertrude Stein called the Lost Generation—the jaded, decadent youth who gave up trying to make sense of a senseless world in the disaffected postwar era—The Sun Also Rises, Ernest Hemingway’s beloved first novel, is a masterpiece of modernist literature and one of the finest examples of the distinctly spare prose that would become his legacy to American letters.
