A beautiful story of a group of American and English expatriates in Paris on an excursion to Pamplona. This features the Left Bank of Paris in the 1920s and brutally realistic descriptions of bullfighting in Spain. It is the story of flamboyant Lady Brett Ashely and the hapless Jake Barnes in an age of moral bankruptcy, spiritual dissolution, unrealized love and vanishing illusions.
