To Have and Have not -

Posted to What Are You Reading?




is a very interesting novel, I love the different perspectives (I read it a while ago, so forgive me for any errors) of the Caption Harry Morgan (?) and some business man (who's wife hates him.) Hemingway is the master of what i dub 'the movie prose.' Everyone of his books and short stories are so 'clearly' written, that its like watching a flick in your mind - this can be either good or bad...mostly good. Hemingway is a great model to follow for lucid and exact writing.
