Summary (From the publisher):

Jake Barnes is a tragic hero, damaged beyond repair in the war. He has the bad luck to meet and fall in love with Brett Ashley, a beautiful young Englishwoman. Worse, she finds in Jake everything she ever wanted but now cannot have. It is a hopeless and compelling relationship, told without affectation or sentiment by a young author just reaching the height of his powers.

I looked at myself in the mirror... Well, it was a rotten way to be wounded... The liaison colonel came to visit me... he made that wonderful speech: "You... have just given more than your life."

And those words came back to Jack Barnes now that the war was over and now that he was in love.
