“We did a group read of the only novel Hemingway set in Key West, ‘To Have and Have Not,’ published in 1937. Over Hemingway daiquiris in a quiet resort bar, we discussed meanings of the title, the social criticism of the wealthy, the way Hemingway wove in the history of Cuba and Key West, the violence, the attitude toward women, and the flaws in the narrative structure. We were brilliant.”
