The novel opens in Paris, France, which is home to Jake and several of the other characters. The city is bustling and modern, filled with cafes, bars, and dancing clubs where the expatriates spend a great deal of their time. It serves as a sharp contrast to the earthiness of Pamplona and the book's other settings.
