ISSUE #10: The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway

A brilliant novel that takes a peek into the angst and disillusionment of the post-World War I generation. Unforgettable characters Jake Barnes and Lady Brett Ashley cavort their way through the wild Parisian nightlife of the Roaring 1920s and into the brutal bullfighting rings of Spain with a motley group of expatriates; ripe with moral decay. The novel is a powerful reminder of how the seeming endless void after the war left unrealized dreams, shattered lives and unrequited love. Hallmark of Hemingway’s sparse but powerful prose, The Sun Also Rises is a timeless classic that ventures to produce a snapshot of a truly unique time in human history and helped establish Hemingway as among the greatest authors of the twentieth century.
