From one of the best writers in American literature, a classic novel about smuggling, intrigue, and love.
To Have and Have Not is the dramatic story of Harry Morgan, an honest man who is forced into running contraband between Cuba and Key West as a means of keeping his crumbling family financially afloat. His adventures lead him into the world of the wealthy and dissipated yachtsmen who throng the region and involve him in a strange and unlikely love affair.
In this harshly realistic, yet oddly tender and wise novel, Hemingway perceptively delineates the personal struggles of both the "haves" and the "have nots" and creates one of the most subtle and moving portraits of a love affair in his oeuvre. By turns funny and tragic, lively and poetic, remarkable in its emotional impact, To Have and Have Not is literary high adventure at its finest.
Will Patton is the best audiobook reader out there today. He has a great voice. I highly recommend any audiobook he reads. I've listened to every one.
To Have and Have Not
Fantastically written and beautifully tragic. I would, of course, expect nothing less from Ernest Hemingway
Trash compares old man and the sea.
This was the worst Hemingway book by far.
