Book Overview: The Sun Also Rises (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition)

Hemingway's classic novel of post-war disillusionment--the emblematic novel of the Lost Generation--now available for the first time from Penguin Classics, in a beautiful Graphic Deluxe Edition featuring flaps, deckled edges, and specially commissioned cover art by R. Kikuo Johnson and a new introduction by Amor Towles, the multimillion-copy bestselling author of The Lincoln Highway, A Gentleman in Moscow, and Rules of Civility

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.

"It is a testament to Hemingway's skill as a storyteller that nearly a hundred years after its publication, The Sun Also Rises remains deeply satisfying. . . . Despite the passage of the decades, we continue . . . to be attracted to the company of these bon vivants." -- Amor Towles, from the Introduction

"The ideal companion for troubled times: equal parts Continental escape and serious grappling with the question of what it means to be, and feel, lost . . . [The] themes he touches on--how to make sense of a time in crisis, how to find authenticity and meaning out of upheaval--are as pertinent as they've ever been." -- The Wall Street Journal

"Hemingway's first, and best, novel . . . A literary landmark that earns its reputation as a modern classic." -- The Guardian

"An absorbing, beautifully and tenderly absurd, heartbreaking narrative . . . A truly gripping story, told in lean, hard, athletic prose." -- The New York Times

Ernest Hemingway
Ernest Hemingway, a stalwart of American literature, was known for his succinct and straightforward writing style that starkly contrasted with the elaborate prose favored by many of his contemporaries. Born July 21, 1899, in Oak Park, Illinois, Hemingway melded his experiences as an ambulance driver in World War I, a journalist during the Spanish Civil War, and a deep-sea fisher in Cuba and the Florida Keys, with a dramatist's eye for narrative to produce works of enduring significance. His novels and stories—among them "The Old Man and the Sea," "A Farewell to Arms," and "The Sun Also Rises"—exhibit searing insights into the human condition and earned Hemingway a Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954. Amidst his literary success, Hemingway led a lifestyle often as adventurous as those of his characters. His passion for outdoor pursuits, reflected in his love of fishing, hunting, and bullfighting, is passionately inscribed in much of his work. Later in life, Hemingway continued his adventures as a war correspondent during the Spanish Civil War and World War II, experiences that infused a dramatic sensibility and an acute awareness of mortality into his writings. Despite battling physical decline and mental health issues towards the end of his life, Hemingway's cultural impact as a writer remains profound. His discipline, knack for concise prose, and his ability to weave a compelling, honest tale continue to resonate with readers worldwide. Serving as an inspiration for countless authors, Ernest Hemingway, who tragically took his own life in 1961, leaves behind a literary legacy that continues to shape the landscape of American literature.
