The Sun Also Rises is largely acknowledged as a masterpiece that redefined modern literature. The troubled and raucous characters in Earnest Hemingway’s novel however, are hardly a work of fiction. Everybody Behaves Badly is a captivating, anecdote-filled account of Hemingway’s debaucherous trip through Spain and how his friends and adventures inspired The Sun Also Rises.
