Book - 1995
Rate this:
Gathered from the author's 20-year romance with America's southernmost city, here is a collection of 60 essays and 65 photographs that show Key West's brimming treasure chest of fascinating lore. Since arriving in Key West in 1975, the author has worked as a go-go dancer, a newspaper reporter, a tour guide, an assistant to America's first gay mayor, a fine-art saleswoman, a bartender, and a waitress. She witnessed this beloved island, the place Ernest Hemingway called "the poor man's Saint Tropez", grow into one of the world's most dazzling tourist destinations. The essays in this book are both hilarious and poignant parables that delve into the history of a place where the sun shines every day.
