The Old Man and the Sea - Ernest Hemingway

From the cover: “Shorter than the conventional novel, longer than the longest short story, Hemingway’s new work of fiction eludes classification. What can be confidently asserted is that it is a masterly example of literary art, simple and magnificent. Every word in it is right; not one word could have been added; in no other form could the story have been told so effectively.
