Synopsis : The second collection of short stories about Key West from the Key West Authors' Coop. More adventure and fun from the famous little island in South Florida.
A Second Collection of Short Fiction from The Key West Authors' Coop
Have you always harbored a sneaking suspicion that beautiful, laid back Key West just might have a seamier side? Let the down-and-outs, the old folks, the young hustlers, the Cuban refugees and the rest of the characters take you BEYOND PARADISE and find out what a struggle living in a tropical dreamland can be. Take, for instance, Molly and her friends, who will do anything for a cheap string of plastic beads; or King, who finds that one seemingly harmless breakfast toot can change the course of a man's life.
For the memorable characters of BEYOND PARADISE, money is always short but indulgences are plenty, whether they be sunshine, liquor, cheap sex or a pleasure as simple as casting a line into the brilliant blue sea and hooking the big one.
Many of the same writers, J.T. Eggers, Rosalind Brackenbury, Allen Meece, Robin Orlandi, Theresa Foley, William Williamson and Kirby Congdon, published in The Key West Authors' Coop's first collection, ONCE UPON AN ISLAND, return to delight their fans with more stories of life on the southernmost island in the continental United States.
Whether you are looking for an afternoon's escape in the hammock under a palm tree, to take a literary taste of Key West back home with you or simply to enjoy good fiction, BEYOND PARADISE is guaranteed to satisfy.
"There's a new school of writing afoot. It's called the Key West Short Story and you'll find many of its glories in the pages of this book."
David A. Kaufelt
Author of The Fat Boy Murders
