Playing catch-up on some of my overlooked Hemingway reads. To Have and Have Not is quick and worthwhile. A classic example of the use of dialogue as the story telling vehicle. Set in the Florida Keys and Cuba, so much a part of the Hemingway lifestyle. Little wonder he tells the story so well. Smuggling is not a good business or a lifestyle with a future. Few happy endings.
Enjoy this short fiction. No more than a lengthy one or two sitting read.
