    The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway

A poignant look at the disillusionment and angst of the post-World War I generation, the novel introduces two of Hemingway's most unforgettable characters: Jake Barnes and Lady Brett Ashley. The story follows the flamboyant Brett and the hapless Jake as they journey from the wild nightlife of 1920s Paris to the brutal bullfighting rings of Spain with a motley group of expatriates.

Year: 1926
Genre: Bull Fighting

    The Torrents of Spring by Ernest Hemingway

First published in 1926, The Torrents of Spring is a hilarious parody of the Chicago school of literature. Poking fun at that great race of writers, it depicts a vogue that Hemingway himself refused to follow. In style and substance, The Torrents of Spring is a burlesque of Sherwood Anderson's Dark Laughter, but in the course of the narrative, other literary tendencies associated with American and British writers akin to Anderson -- such as D. H. Lawrence, James Joyce, and John Dos Passos -- come in for satirical comment.

Year: 1926
Genre: Satire
