Finding the Books of the Lost Generation

The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway AbeBooks: Finding the Books of the Lost Generation: The Lost Generation was coined by Gertrude Stein to describe the group of expatriate authors and artists living in Paris after Europe had been torn apart by World War I. The story goes that a young Parisian mechanic failed to repair Stein’s car and she voiced her displeasure. The older owner of the garage shouted at the young man "génération perdue,” or lost generation.
