THE SUN ALSO RISES
ESL & Adult Literacy Listening and Reading - Audiobooks - esl-bits.net - adult-literacy.us
by Ernest Hemingway

The story follows the flamboyant Lady Brett Ashley and the hapless Jake Barnes as they journey from the wild nightlife of 1920s Paris to the brutal bullfighting rings of Spain. It is an age of moral bankruptcy, spiritual dissolution, unrealized love, and vanishing illusions.

The Sun Also Rises helped to establish Hemingway as one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century.

Five Short Stories

"Carver was a master of the really short short story, little glimpses of life that pass you by with the merest brush on the shoulder, leaving you with a shiver, a tear, or occasionally a smile."

"Carver captured the solitary American experience at its heartfelt core. It shows what happens to us, the price we pay for our dreams."
