The novel about American and British expatriates in Europe after World War I that defined the Lost Generation.
The Sun Also Rises chronicles the experiences of Jake Barnes, a 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 illuminates both the strengths and shortcomings of the characters' lives.
