Clean, tight, unmarked; slight wear to spine extremes; slight edge wear to dust jacket; otherwise absolute minimal wear; This novel is the story of a luckless old Cuban fisherman who finally lands a huge marlin, only to lose it in a titanic struggle with the sea. The book's short length belies its epic scope, as what seems to be a simple adventure story reveals the very nature of human dignity. Upon its publication, The Old Man and the Sea was both acclaimed and derided. Some readers saw in it the diminishment of Hemingway's powers, while others read it as a profound autobiographical allegory. It is widely thought to have helped him win the Nobel Prize for literature in 1954.
