"There are a million stories in Key West and June Keith seems to know them all." —Dave Barry, Pulitzer Prize–winning columnist

Detailing life in tiny, artsy, anything-goes Key West—where Broadway composers and bestselling authors live on the same funky blocks as housekeepers, bartenders, and tour guides—this updated collection of essays and columns about island life features pieces that first appeared in the Miami Herald. Profiles of colorful characters such as an Italian heiress who waits tables, a dishwasher with a PhD, and a taxi-driving opera singer provide a kaleidoscopic portrait of residents living, working, and playing in a caste-free, rowdy paradise.


"The town stays under your skin." —St. Petersburg Times

"Her love for the people of Key West makes one wish her type thrived all over small-town America." —Southern Voice

"A June Keith column is like a Key West sunset—once it begins you're hooked until it ends." —NBC News

"A pleasure to read." —Alan Shearer, editorial director, The Washington Post Writers Group
