What Classic Literature Was Almost Called (20 books items)

"Fiesta, Ernest Hemingway’s original title for the novel, is still used for some European editions. Hemingway changed the North American version to The Sun Also Rises (which is paraphrased from Ecclesiastes 1:5) at the behest of his publisher. "

"Day 13 - A book that you liked, except the ending Compared to the rest of the book the ending seemed really flat and dull to me, not to mention somewhat expected. Of all the Hemingway I've read this is my least favorite."

He lives in Paris working as a journalist and fills his day with work and night with drinking and clubbing. Through his eyes, the reader sees the general and overall impotence of his generation - "the lost generation" - of people who go about life seeking pleasure and alcohol to numb an existence without any purpose and spiritual depth.
