The Sun Also Rises

Today, I start reading Ernest Hemingway’s second novel, The Sun Also Rises, which is about the “Lost Generation” (American ex-pats living in France and Spain in the 1920s). This is the novel that put Hemingway on the map.

So I look forward to delving into it.

Although I thought The Torrents of Spring was interesting, I hope The Sun Also Rises is a little less Kafka-esque.

I should note that The Sun Also Rises was made into a movie in 1957 that sports an all-star cast (Errol Flynn, Tyrone Power, Ava Gardner, Mel Ferrer, Eddie Albert). I intend to watch it – after I read the book, of course.
