The Sun Also Rises PDF SummaryBack to the Roaring Twenties once again. This time with one of Fitzgerald’s best buds: Mr. Ernest Hemingway.

And his alcohol-infused, sex-crazed, macho-imbued, bullfighting-loaded, anti-Semitic bedlam of account of the times and age in “The Sun Also Rises.”

Who Should Read “The Sun Also Rises”? And Why?

If you are wondering how lost America’s Lost Generation was in the 1920s, and what the best minds of America’s post-World-War-I generation were doing in Europe at the time – here’s a firsthand account.

Ernest Hemingway Biography

Ernest HemingwayErnest Hemingway was one of the greatest and most influential American writers of the 20th century.

“A globe-trotting expert on bullfights, booze, women, wars, big game hunting, deep sea fishing, and courage,” Hemingway lived a life so adventurous that it overshadows his artistic legacy – even though he won a Pulitzer Prize for “The Old Man and the Sea” in 1953 and the Nobel Prize in Literature one year later.

A World War I ambulance driver (seriously injured during the war), he worked as a journalist for most of his early life, reporting from the Spanish Civil War and was present both at D-Day and the liberation of Paris. He also enjoyed bullfighting and safari-hunting in Africa.

He lived his later life in Cuba, survived two fatal plane crashes, and committed suicide in 1961.

Many of his short stories and novels are considered classics. His posthumously published memoir, “A Moveable Feast” is regarded as one of the best non-fiction books in history.
