The Sun Also Rises

A book I read at least once a year. I took American studies as part of my degree, and found Hemingway a little late, but “The Sun Also Rises” is the ultimate of the modernist school. I’m not sure why I read it so often, but much has to do with the huge love affair at the heart of it—and the setting, between the wars, within the world of this lost generation of expats. It just completely transports me from wherever I am to Paris and Pamplona. And his writing has such hidden depths—every time I read it I find something new. It takes a lost soul to convey so much.
