Ernest Miller Hemingway was an American writer with strong Spanish connections - he wrote 'Death in the Afternoon', a book about bullfighting and later wrote his novel 'For Whom The Bell Tolls' based on real events in the Spanish Civil War. He also wrot 'The Sun Also Rises' - a 1926 novel about a group of American and British expatriates who travel from Paris to the Festival of San Fermín in Pamplona to watch the 'Running of the Bulls'.
He lay flat on the brown, pine-needled floor, his chin on his folded arms, and high overhead the wind blew in the tops of the pine trees. -- For Whom the Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway I read this book in May of this year. It made a huge impression on me.
Not only can you get your literary passport stamped twice with Hemingway's romp through Paris and Pamplona, but you can enjoy an immersive mood piece about the highs and lows of drunken, rambling youth.
