The Sun Also Rises (Literature)

"Um, can we skip English today? I have some sort of Hemingway related narcolepsy. You start talking about The Sun Also Rises and I start falling asleep."
"Don't blame Papa, blame Mrs. Murphy's monotone."

"Papa" was a nickname of Hemingway and The Sun Also Rises is considered one of his best works; it's about a group of thirtysomethings after World War I. Certainly, the book is less boring than The Old Man and the Sea which is just about this old guy fishing. Meg should count her lucky stars.
