9780140010657: To Have and Have Not (Modern Classics)

Harry Morgan was hard, the classic Hemingway hero. He had to be hard - rum-running, gun-running and man-running from Cuba to the Florida Keys in the Depression. He ran risks too, from stray coastguard bullets and sudden double-crosses, but it was the only way he could survive.

"Absorbing and moving. It opens with a fusillade of bullets, reaches its climax with another, and sustains a high pitch of excitement throughout" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"Its tragic scenes are rendered with an economy of words and a power that might well be the despair of a lesser writer" ( Scotsman)

"This active, passionate life on the verge of the tropics is perfect material for the Hemingway style, and the reader carries away from the book a sense of freshness and exhilaration; trade winds, southern cities and warm seas all admirably described by the instrument of precision with which he writes" ( New Statesman)
