Literature Tropical style
Reading -The truly complete Buffett lifestyle requires a hammock and a stack of good books. Here's a few from our Recommended Reading List:
Island Bound - by J. D. Gordon. A great mix of suspense, mystery, adventure and carefree attitude in the Keys and the Caribbean.
Travis McGee - The classic John MacDonald detective series. Required reading for all Parrot Heads.
A Pirate Looks at Fifty - He blends gentle scenic narration with rambling, unplugged life stories meant to convey that he's made peace with the whole aging process.
Where is Joe Merchant? - It's about seaplanes, a pretty girl, a vanished rock star, the curse of jet skis, a magic scepter, disrupters of paradise, and conch burgers. A timeless tale of adventure.
Tales From Margaritaville - is a collection of short stories (some purely fiction, some based in truth) so vividly packed with restless dreamers, wild wanderers, and pure gypsy souls that just reading it is a wild adventure.
A Salty Piece of Land - Mr. Buffett's newest work of fiction. A groovy laid-back, ramblingly anecdotal, sun-soaked bit of Caribbean escapism that his Parrot head fans will relish like another chorus of "Margaritaville."
Telex From Cuba -by Rachel Kushner. It was one of those stories that just wraps you up and takes you there. And there, in this case, is late 1950s Cuba, the height of glamour and revolt. It has multiple vantage points including a burlesque dancer, a 10 year old boy, and a spy, and it gives the feel of what it would have been like to be all of those during this tumultuous time in history.
