It's a corner of an island off the coast of the larger island of Puerto Rico--a colony of a colony--an undeveloped natural paradise where wild horses roam the streets and strange things often happen.
For new arrival Jim Rollins, living on Flamboyan Street is both an unexpected idyl and a test of his wits and adaptability. Born to wealth, Rollins has a lifetime of privilege behind him, but he finds on Flamboyan Street that he still has a lot to learn.
Flamboyan Street is a comic fantasy inspired by the author's real experiences during a decade on the real Vieques. it's a quick and entertaining read for an afternoon at the beach and a comic preview for anyone who has dreamed of "chucking it all" and moving to the Caribbean.

Meet the Author

Glenn Curry was born in Key West, Fla., a very long time ago. As a young man, he pursued an academic career in Miami, Fla., Nashville, Tenn., and Bogota and Cartagena, Colombia. Later, he taught for several years at private schools in the Phildelphia area before becoming the world's oldest cub reporter. During the 1990s, he masqueraded as the editor of an art magazine.
In 2002, as the navy was giving up its use of the island as a bombing range, Curry moved to Vieques, where he and his wife became the owners of Bananas, a very casual guesthouse, beach bar and grill.
In 2013, he moved back to Key West, just as Flamboyan Street was about to appear.
