A classic novel about smuggling, intrigue and love. Harry Morgan is an honest man who is forced into running contraband between Cuba and Key West to make a living during the Depression from his motorboat in Florida. 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. Although he normally takes out fishing parties, sometimes his boat can be put to other uses and if the money offered is worth his while, Harry will run guns, rum and men to and from Cuba, but he is playing a dicey game. In this harshly realistic, yet oddly tender and wise novel, Ernest Hemingway perceptively delineates the personal struggles of both the 'haves' and the 'have nots' and his hardest hero risks not just his living, but his life. By turns funny and tragic, lively and poetic, this is literary high adventure at its finest. 180pp, paperback.
