1953 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, cited by the Nobel Committee as contributing to their awarding of the Nobel Prize in Literature to Hemingway in 1954. #173 on the Big Read List (UK's top 200).

A classic tale of the struggle of man against nature. After 84 days without taking a fish, Santiago is soon to catch something larger than he ever imagined. It is his courage and perseverance of character that enables him to go out to sea in his weather-beaten boat each day despite the hardship and the disappointment of catching nothing.
In the midst of ridicule from younger fishermen, Santiago finds courage in his friendship with a young boy, Manolin, who has fished with Santiago since he was five years old. But because of Santiago's "bad luck," Manolin's parents will not allow the boy to fish with Santiago anymore. One day Santiago goes out once more, further than usual, and he catches something—something large that pulls him and his boat out to sea. His endurance during the ordeal and in the face of apparent defeat is the stuff of legends.
