Ernest Hemingway's first published novel and the definitive portrait of the Lost Generation; now, distinctively packaged with a beautifully designed jacket by noted illustrator Malika Favre. The Sun Also Rises chronicles the experiences of Jake Barnes, a wounded war veteran now working as a journalist in Paris in the aftermath of World War I, and his American and British expatriate friends--among them his occasional love interest, Lady Brett Ashley--as they search for meaning and purpose in their unmoored lives. The novel's plot climaxes in Spain, during the running of the bulls in Pamplona, in a series of events that illuminate both the strengths and shortcomings of the characters' lives.
