A Penguin Classics Graphic Deluxe Edition
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.Author:

About the Author
Ernest Hemingway (1889-1961) wrote in a clear, spare, deceptively simple style that made him one of the most admired and imitated authors of the twentieth century. Born in Chicago, he traveled widely throughout his life, living in Italy, France, Spain, and Cuba, and reporting from the frontlines of World War I, the Spanish Civil War, and World War II. His best-known novels are The Sun Also Rises, A Farewell to Arms, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and The Old Man and the Sea, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1953. A year later Hemingway won the Nobel Prize in Literature.
Amor Towles (introduction) is the multimillion-copy bestselling author of A Gentleman in Moscow, Rules of Civility, and The Lincoln Highway. Born and raised in the Boston area, he now lives in Manhattan.
