The novel features the character Harry Morgan, who lives in Key West- "that paradise of the 'haves' and the purgatory of the 'have-nots.'" Morgan, a sea captain and honest man, is forced to run commercial and sometimes human contraband between Florida and Cuba. Notably, To Have and Have Not was made into a film in 1941 starring Humphrey Bogart as Harry Morgan.
