To Have and Have Not
To Have and Have Not | Ernest Hemingway
To Have and Have Not is the dramatic, brutal story of Harry Morgan, an honest boat owner 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 swarm the region, and involve him in a strange and unlikely love affair. In this harshly realistic, yet oddly tender and wise novel, Hemingway perceptively delineates the personal struggles of both the "haves" and the "have nots" and creates one of the most subtle and moving portraits of a love affair in his oeuvre. In turn funny and tragic, lively and poetic, remarkable in its emotional impact, To Have and Have Not takes literary high adventure to a new level. As the Times Literary Supplement observed, "Hemingway's gift for dialogue, for effective understatement, and for communicating such emotions the tough allow themselves, has never been more conspicuous."

Wrapped up a successful trip to Key West for the Hemingway Days festival. It was hot and wonderful and I wish I never had to leave.

Samplergal I‘m sorry we left the Keys before the festival. It might be the only way I‘d get my introverted butt back to key west. Lol. Glad you had a fun time. Love his home and the kitties. 4mo

4.5 hours left in #24in48 for me! Just finished this slim Hemingway novel... v dated, especially with the racist undertones throughout 😐

This is the only one of Hemingway‘s novels that‘s set in Key West. Couldn‘t resist picking this one up at the Hemingway House Museum shop (all their books have this sticker on the covers). I like Hemingway‘s writing, so that was a pick. But didn‘t enjoy the racial labels (n-word, etc).

Wish I could say the shirt is from Key West. It‘s actually from Target 😂. We found out afterwards that son needs a Hawaii/Keys shirt for one night of his trip 😂

CouronneDhiver Key West is good fun. I loved our Hemingway House tour. 1y
QuintusMarcus The Bogart/Bacall movie version is spectacular, highly recommended! 1y

Lynnsoprano Was Key West crowded? When we were there in December, although almost everything had been cleaned/fixed up after the hurricane, tourists hadn‘t come back yet. It was nice to be able to walk into restaurants 😄 1y
ValerieAndBooks @CouronneDhiver it definitely was a highlight of our stay in Key West 😊 1y
ValerieAndBooks @QuintusMarcus I‘ll have to watch! 1y
ValerieAndBooks @Lynnsoprano There were plenty of people around, but we never had a problem being able to get a table right away anywhere. Didn‘t feel overwhelmed with people. Is that ever normal? One day we drove up and down the highway through the keys and we saw a bit of hurricane damage still left throughout. It was so hot the whole time 😅! I was going to ask you how far you were from Key West but then I saw you‘d be in Maine during that time 😊. 1y
Lynnsoprano @ValerieAndBooks We‘re a 4.5 -5 hour drive to Key West. The keys are a long, slow drive. Lunch at the Green Turtle Inn in Islamorada would have been fun, though. One of these days...😄 1y
ValerieAndBooks @Lynnsoprano we rented a car one day and drove from Key West to Key Largo and back. No stop-and-go traffic either way (it was a Tuesday) but the speed limit as you probably know was just 45 mph most of the way. I think I remember passing the Green Turtle Inn! But we stopped at a place in Marathon for lunch, because our airport shuttle driver had recommended it. I forgot its name but it was good 😊! 1y

I'm not a Hemingway lover, and I loved this less than usual. Another tick off the #1001books list, however. (The dog is rolling her eyes at being in yet another book photo...) #dogsoflitsy

BarbaraBB I agree, it‘s not his best. 2y

I love Hem and his ability to tell a whole story through some disjointed events but this one had me cruising through the last 75 pages. The suddenness of a pair of unhappy married couples and their petty banter had me laughing despite the little sense it made to include them in Harry‘s story.

I can read Hemingway describe fish all day. I don't know how he does it but he's describing the visceral interaction between man and beast, he's at his finest.

Celebrating Hemingway and toasting him on his birthday. May have imbibed a little too much to fully focus but I feel like he would enjoy that as well.

#day15 #90sinjuly #motorcycledriveby The only time I ever ride a motorcycle (or to be more accurate - a moped! 😂) is when we go to Key West. Whilst there, I love to visit Hemingway House. The tour is so fun, full of gossipy stories about his time in Key West, and surrounded by the legendary six-toed cats.... My favorite story is the swimming pool feud with his wife, which ended in the urinal from a local bar as a giant cat bowl/water feature! 😂

Robothugs Well this is totally interesting! I had no idea. I want to go to Key West to visit said house! 2y

453 - To Have and Have Not

Short stories about live in and trade between Cuba and Florida. Harry Morgan is a shipper who will take on all kinds of deals sailing between the two coasts. In between there are a lot of alcohol and fights. I didn't especially like the book. At least it was short.

Relaxing with Hem and some tea after a long day at work. I hope all you Littens are having a great night too! Love you all! ♡ Ooh! Any word yet on any Spring book exchanges yet, like the one we did for Valentine's day? I'm so looking forward to doing that again! :-)

JazzFeathers Hi Branwen. I'm very new to this place and l'm still learning the ropes. What is a book exchange? It sounds like domattina interesting ^_^ 3y
JazzFeathers Oops! I meant 'like something interesting' Sorry, my mobile only speaks ltalian ;) 3y
Branwen @JazzFeathers It's this really fun thing where you are assigned another person and then you send them a package with books and book related goodies. It's exciting because usually there is a day where everyone opens their packages together! The last one was for Valentine's day. :-) 3y

I thought I'd give this one a shot. Seems like a fairly quick read and I can finally watch the Bogey-Bacall film that totally butchers the plot! :)
