In the aftermath of the First World War, Paris offers a liberating waystation for expatriate newspaperman Jake Barnes. Jake is a casualty of the war, and his disillusionment would be complete were it not for his relationship with the fast-living, twice-divorced Englishwoman Brett Ashley. Along with a small collection of other dissolute expats, Jake and Brett travel from the cafés of Paris to the wild fiestas of Pamplona on a desperate quest for fulfillment.
The Sun Also Rises paints a vivid portrait of a generation just beginning to grapple with the emotional and spiritual fallout of war, and it remains one of Ernest Hemingway’s most moving and captivating works.
Revised edition: Previously published as The Sun Also Rises, this edition of The Sun Also Rises (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.
