With an introduction by Maria Hinojosa -- Cover

"First published in 1926, 'The Sun Also Rises' displays the full flower of Hemingway's unique style, at once spare and gut-wrenching. Following a group of expatriates in Europe after the devastation of World War I, the novel traces the doomed love story of Jake Barnes, a veteran wrestling with wounds both physical and emotional, and the beautiful Lady Ashley. As they drift from the hedonistic nightlife of Paris to the macho world of bullfighting in Spain, these members of the Lost Generation face the loss of their illusions and the impossibility of love. Closely based on true people and events Hemingway experienced as an expat in Europe, this debut novel marked the arrival of a towering talent." -- Back cover
