Overview

After frequenting the Florida Keys for decades and bringing them to life in many of his novels, author Tom Winton has now written about his deep love affair with that magical string of islands. But TRIPPING ON COCONUTS is not all sunny memories, calm seas, and smooth sailing. It's also chock full of the author's zany adventures and mishaps--two of which are kindle-clutching life-and-death situations.

With his trademark cinematic writing style, Winton, a longtime Florida resident, will make you feel like you're actually right there beside him during his escapades and exploits. You'll envision every quirk at his funky ten-minute Key West wedding. You'll feel like you, too, are risking your life during a daring rescue attempt in dangerous windblown seas. You'll feel a shotgun being waved at you in the dark of night and learn life lessons in bars from Key Largo all the down way to Key West. But that's just the beginning. So slap on some suntan oil, mix a margarita, and come TRIPPING ON COCONUTS to a fascinating place where memories are made.

A fun bunch of stories about the author’s time in the Florida keys. The stories are sometimes funny and sometimes hair raising but they are a must for those of us who love the keys and dream of making them home. Well written and interesting they are a must read for every Jimmy Buffet beach bum!
