Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read. THE QUINTESSENTIAL NARRATIVE OF THE LOST GENERATION The Sun Also Rises is one of Ernest Hemingway's masterpieces and a classic example of his spare but powerful style. A poignant look at the disillusionment and angst of the post-World War I generation, the story introduces two of Hemingway's most unforgettable characters: Jake Barnes and Lady Brett Ashley. Follow the flamboyant Brett and the hapless Jake as they journey from the wild nightlife of 1920s Paris to the brutal bullfighting rings of Spain with a motley group of expatriates. It is an age of moral bankruptcy, spiritual dissolution, unrealized love and vanishing illusions. First published in 1926, The Sun Also Rises helped to establish Hemingway as one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“An absorbing, beautifully and tenderly absurd, heart-breaking narrative…It is a truly gripping story, told in lean, hard athletic prose…magnificent.”  New York Times 
“Some of the finest and most restrained writing that this generation has produced.”  New York World 
The Sun Also Rises is Hemingway’s masterpiece—one of them, anyway—and no matter how many times you’ve read it or how you feel about the manners and morals of the characters, you won’t be able to resist its spell.”  Amazon.com, editorial review
