by Jimmy Buffett
Publication Date: June 11, 1989
Publisher: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich
The singer/songwriter displays his gift for creating witty, laid-back Southern stories in a collection of bizarre tales and thoughtful essays
A recent re-read for me, though I dare not try to add the dates, as I’m afraid BL will blow my original dates out.
I love these stories and continue to love them every time I read them. They remind me of my home, and their eccentric and quirky. What I didn’t remember from previous re-reads was the Australian thread that runs through both the book and many of the stories. Buffett opens with a quote from Bruce Chatwin’s The Songlines, in an introduction titled “Walkabout”, and at least one – two? – stories include references to aboriginal myth. A small thing, but a nice parallel for a Florida girl on a decade-plus walkabout down under.
