American Journalist Jake Barnes is desperately in love with the beautiful Lady Brett Ashley. She moves seductively through the seemingly glamorous milieu of American and British expats, loving, living and partying in Paris in the 1920's. They're a hedonistic generation, marked by the violence and privations of WW1, in pursuit of adventure.

Ever restless, Jake and Lady Brett travel together with a disparate group of friends through France to Pamplona in Spain. There they are taken up by the vitality and the spectacle of the famous Fiesta of St Fermin. In a city famous for its bullfighting, Jake is plagued by jealousy and real love seems forever out of reach. The drama of the bullfighting is captured on the page by Hemingway with brutal realism in a remarkable novel that secured his place as an astonishing new writer and a voice for his generation.
