"I had only been in Key Waste for a little over an hour when I was shanghaied into my first major dope deal."
When Al, a recent college graduate attempting to delay his entrance into the 'real world," sets out to search for a lost uncle and a little adventure in the rum jungle of the Florida Keys, he gets a whole lot more than he bargained for.
Al discovers a thriving hidden subculture teeming with outlaw intrigue and populated by crooks and crazies of all varieties. Through an increasingly bizarre and hilarious series of maneuvers and shenanigans, these individuals give him an unexpected sense of home and belonging.
Rife with madness, mayhem, and murder, "Key Waste: Swinging with Savages in the Conch Republic" is a shady and mysterious tale about a place that lies at the end of the road, the end of the continent, and, some might say, the end of the world.
Author Jag Allan has crafted a distinctly American story about a young Gen Xer's journey to find the soul of his nation-and the soul in himself.
