HEMINGWAYS’s brilliant novel of frustrated love
To love and be loved, yet to know fulfillment can never be achieved – that is Jake Barnes’ tragedy. He and Brett Ashley drift about Paris, rootless, pleasure-seeking. She, attractive, passionate, can’t resist the advances of other men.
Together they go to Spain. Crowds flock to Pamplona’s fiesta. Brett falls for a bullfighter.
I’m mad about him, she tells Jake. “I can’t help it… it’s tearing me all up inside.”
