Like a fine cigar, this fabulous edition of the classic "The Old Man and the Sea" was smuggled out of Cuba about 20 years ago. It is signed by Ernest Hemingway himself and was a personal copy in the possession of actor Charlie Sheen. The short novel was written in Cuba 68 years ago and published a year later in 1952. The story is set in that now communist nation and centers on a local fisherman named Santiago who struggles to snare an evasive marlin.
