Book Review: OLD MAN & THE SEA, by Ernest Hemingway

Old man hooks big fish; fish drags old man out to sea. Classic man vs. nature theme (according to my English degree), but Hemingway is a genius at short, gorgeous sentences. I respect that tremendously--the ability to say big things in little spaces. This book is small and brilliant. Hemingway won the Pulitzer for it in 1953.
