Publisher's Summary

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 wealthy and dissipated yachtsmen who throng the region, and involve him in a strange and unlikely love affair. Harsh, 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.

Loved the dialogue and incredible narration

What else to say beyond the headline? Superbly written by Hemingway, bleak, to the point, sometimes with a tenderness under the despair.
A novel during the US recession era set between Miami and Cuba which got Hemingway into trouble for its supposedly Marxist content.
The highlight for me though was the incredible narration of Will Patton who brought Hemingway's language and the mood to life. The best narrator I've come across on Audible, possibly also because he was backed by a full production team who gets credited in the end.
More Audible of this quality please!!!
