It didn’t win the Pulitzer Prize and the Nobel Prize for Literature for nothing

“The Old Man and the Sea” by Ernest Hemingway

The first read in 2022. A tale of perseverance during a difficult circumstance, as well as the struggle for meaning and success in life. Narrated through the simple story of a failing fisherman against his big fish. “A man can be destroyed but not defeated”, Santiago says, which is encouraging during this start of a possibly another turbulent year.
