Florida is TOO a literary place!

Sure we’re better known for Disney World, South Beach and real estate swindles but Florida has a rich and continuing literary heritage, dammit — and in today’s Miami Herald my friend and occasional editor Connie Ogle provides a list of her picks for the best. The only change I’d make is to add “The Truth About Lorin Jones” by Alison Lurie — always my recommendation for a Key West novel, if anyone asks me. And if you want to read one book to get a pretty good sense of Florida history — especially South Florida — you can’t beat “The Swamp” by Michael Grunwald.
