"Some of the finest and most restrained writing that this generation has produced."

"An absorbing, beautifully and tenderly absurd, heart-breaking narrative...It is a truly gripping story, told in lean, hard athletic prose...magnificent."

About the Author
Ernest Hemingway did more to influence the style of English prose than any other writer of his time. Publication of The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms immediately established him as one of the greatest literary lights of the 20th century. His classic novella The Old Man and the Sea won the Pulitzer Prize in 1953. Hemingway was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954. He died in 1961.

This edition has included sections that Eh had excised from the book and their greatest worth is that it shows how difficult is was for the author to write an an apparently simple manner. One can never go wrong when experiencing the work of a master. An aside, if you want to get a laugh or a scare about the fate of literary culture read some of the 1 and 2 star reviews. Talk about casting pearls before swines!
I read this at the same time as I was reading "The Paris Wife: A Novel," by Paula McLain, a fictionalized account of Ernest Hemingway's marriage to Hadley Richardson. The couple lived in 1920s Jazz Age Paris, and it was during this time that he wrote "The Sun Also Rises," a book that was very much based on their friends and activities during that time. It was fascinating to read the two together and identify each character in "The Sun Also Rises" with the real-life person who was part of the Hemingways' Paris existence.
