One of the best books I have ever read is Hemingway's "The Sun Also Rises." Recently I read it again and enjoyed it all the more. The novel is also Hemingway's best work. It portrays the post-war generation their angst, their love, their romances against a back drop of bull fighting by matadors and toreros.
Read it if you can get hold of a copy. Meanwhile here is the Wikipedia article about the book.
