- THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA
DetailsSet in the Gulf stream off the coast of Havana. Hemingway's magnificent fable is the story of an old man, a young boy and a giant fish. It was The Old Man and the Sea that won for Hemingway the Nobel Prize for Literature. Here, in a perfectly crafted story, is a unique and a timeless vision of the beauty and the grief of man's challenge to the elements in which he lives.
