THE SUN ALSO RISES is the story of expatriate Americans and British in Paris between the wars. Talented and cynical, left without illusions by a war that killed many of their contemporaries, they suffered a failure of purpose that Gertrude Stein identified and named "The Lost Generation."

Jake Barnes is a tragic hero, damaged beyond repair in the war. He has the bad luck to meet and fall in love with Brett Ashley, a beautiful young Englishwoman. Worse, she finds in Jake everything she ever wanted but now cannot have. It is a hopeless and compelling relationship, told without affectation or sentiment by a young author just reaching the height of his powers.
