Driftwood Houses: a Key West story sequence
Jon Michael Miller
A sequence of short stories set in Key West. Each tale is a slice of life--people working on their dreams. The mood of the piece as a whole is comic irony in the style of Florida Fiction.
Jon Michael Miller, the author of "Roz: A Jamaican Lolita" among other fictional works, masterfully creates a cast of characters: a retiree beachcomber, a Japanese porn star, a Hip-Hop thug, a Cuban ex-patriot, a dowdy motel owner, a lovely teenage virgin, a bored naval wife, a caustic lesbian writing teacher, a punk street prostitute, a repentant pedophile, an all-American med student, a salty charter captain, a Native American art dealer, an Iranian refugee, and an African American ex-boxer mystic.
Each story stands alone yet all are interelated so that taken in sequence they read like a novel.
