A Year in Key West
What would you do if you were on
holiday and your better half said 'Let's not go back'?
Would you stay?
Would you stay if staying meant giving up
everything back home in the UK to live on the backwater
island of Key West, Florida--illegally?
Come with me to
this oddball, bacchanalian corner of the world where
anything goes, the closest major city is Havana and where my
wife and I lead an eye-popping, adventure-filled life until
it is all ripped asunder by a catastrophic hurricane.
WEST: Tequila, a Pinch of Salt and a Quirky Slice of America
is a lyrical portrait of a couple from the UK integrating
themselves on a startlingly picturesque, joyously wacky
island that is more Caribbean than it is American. More
neurotic than it is sane. More corrupt than it is
law-abiding. And more prone to hurricanes than it should be.
This book is a celebration of life, love and adventure--an
enchanting account of a couple who weren't afraid to jump
off the hamster wheel and have a go at a dream.
