RARA-AVIS: To Have and Have Not

There's been some discussion of Hemingway on list even though he hasn't written alot of hardboiled stuff. He wrote one hardboiled novel called To Have and Have Not. Forget the movie. it was good but again you must go to the book it is far far darker and more hardboiled. After a playboy fisherman stiffs him for weeks of pay Morgan has to bootleg to keep his boat and gets shot and loses his arm and it just spins downward from there. The first half of the book is actually some of Papa's best writing. In the last half he seems to lose focus and meander a little, it is still good stuff however.
