Cover of The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway

Thursday, December 26, 2019 through Thursday, January 2, 2020. Read by Michael Hanson.

The Old Man and the Sea is one of Hemingway’s most enduring works. Told in language of great simplicity and power, it is the story of an old Cuban fisherman, down on his luck, and his supreme ordeal — a relentless, agonizing battle with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream.
