Set in the Gulf Stream off the coast of Havana, Ernest Hemingway's magnificent fable The Old Man and the Sea is the story of an old man, a young boy and a giant fish. Here, is a perfectly crafted story, a unique and timeless vision of the beauty and grief of man's challenge to the elements in which he lives.

At the beginning of 1940, Hemingway lived in Cuba with Martha Gellhorn (his third wife) there, his favourite past-time was to sail and fish on his boat- many academics believe that much of this classic novella comes from his time spent there, so much so, that after his death, his boat was given to the Cuban government. The Old Man and the Sea was Hemingway's last novel before his suicide in 1960, and the one that won for him the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954.
