"Entertaining....The whole volume is a tribute to Buffett's storytelling skills and his essentially sunny, manana-influenced worldview."
Just where is Margaritaville anyway? It's not on a map, but it does exist, in the brilliantly creative, sometimes slightly skewed imagination of Jimmy Buffett. Now the man who brought us such memorable hit tunes as "Cheeseburger in Paradise, " "Changes in Lattitudes, Changes in Attitudes, " and "Margaritaville, " has turned his singular talent to writing short stories, some fictional, some not. The happy result is TALES FROM MARGARITAVILLE, a collection so vividly packed with restless dreamers, wild wanderers and pure gypsy souls that just reading it is an adventure itself.
