Simon and Schuster
Hemingway's 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.
Harshly realistic, yet with one of the most subtle and moving relationships in the Hemingway oeuvre, To Have and Have Not is literary high adventure at its finest.

I'm not a Hemmingway fan, but I did get into this book. I found myself caring about what happened to Harry Morgan.

The rare case where the film is much better than the book.

Wonderful, exciting story beautifully written. Harry's love for his family, his honesty, his instant appraisal of the harsh world he inhabits - the reader goes away wishing to have had more of Harry Morgan's life, his story before this one. Excellent writing.

Not one of his best. From what I remember hearing is that it took him several attempts to complete. The context of the book is sloppy. He goes in and out of 1st person to 3rd person. While I applaud him on his creativity, it turns out too choppy. The rasict stuff was too much as well. I understand times were different back then but jeeesh!
