This is a short book Ernest Hemingway wrote late in his life, during his Cuban years. The fisherman's struggle to bring his greatest catch ever, the shark, in from the sea while it is slowly and painfully bitten and chewed up by the other fish along the way is the metaphor for life's struggles. Every unknown man, trying to achieve something in anonymopus splendor, can relate to it. It also revived Hemingway as a great writer after a few lean years.
