Ernest Hemingway was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1953 and the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954. His book The Sun Also Rises, which first appeared in 1926, tells the story of young American and British expatriates who, disillusioned by World War I, have been called the “lost generation.” Weary of drinking and dancing in Paris, they go to the Spanish town of Pamplona for a week-long fiesta known for the running of the bulls and brutal bullfighting. As described in The New York Times, the book is “a heart-breaking narrative...a truly gripping story, told in lean, hard, athletic prose...magnificent.”
