About the Author
Ernest Hemingway (1889-1961) wrote in a clear, spare, deceptively simple style that made him one of the most admired and imitated authors of the twentieth century. Born in Chicago, he traveled widely throughout his life, living in Italy, France, Spain, and Cuba, and reporting from the frontlines of World War I, the Spanish Civil War, and World War II. His best-known novels are The Sun Also Rises, A Farewell to Arms, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and The Old Man and the Sea, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1953. A year later Hemingway won the Nobel Prize in Literature.

Amor Towles (introduction) is the multimillion-copy bestselling author of The Lincoln Highway, A Gentleman in Moscow, and Rules of Civility. Born and raised in the Boston area, he now lives in Manhattan.

R. Kikuo Johnson (cover illustrator) is an award-winning illustrator best known for his covers for The New Yorker. Born in Maui, he now lives in Brooklyn.
"It is a testament to Hemingway's skill as a storyteller that nearly a hundred years after its publication, The Sun Also Rises remains deeply satisfying. . . . Despite the passage of the decades, we continue . . . to be attracted to the company of these bon vivants." --Amor Towles, from the Introduction

"The ideal companion for troubled times: equal parts Continental escape and serious grappling with the question of what it means to be, and feel, lost . . . [The] themes he touches on--how to make sense of a time in crisis, how to find authenticity and meaning out of upheaval--are as pertinent as they've ever been." --The Wall Street Journal

"Hemingway's first, and best, novel . . . A literary landmark that earns its reputation as a modern classic." --The Guardian

"An absorbing, beautifully and tenderly absurd, heartbreaking narrative . . . A truly gripping story, told in lean, hard, athletic prose." --The New York Times
