This semester’s book club selection is Ernest Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises. It was chosen from NPR’s Great American Read list, which was compiled from a survey of Americans’ most-loved novels. They call the novel:
A poignant look at the disillusionment and angst of the post-World War I generation, the story follows the flamboyant Brett and the hapless Jake as they journey from the wild nightlife of 1920s Paris to the brutal bullfighting rings of Spain with a motley group of expatriates in an age of moral bankruptcy, spiritual dissolution, unrealized love, and vanishing illusions.
