This copy has been SIGNED by Bob Shacochis on the title page. The author's first collection of stories. Here are sexy, savvy stories that will forever change the way you think of the Caribbean. Bob Shacochis's tropics are a humid and beguiling web of intrigue, weird humor, poverty and extravagance. "The terms of life in the islands," one of his characters realizes, "were that nothing ever made sense, unless you were a mystic or a politician, or studied both with ambition. Then every stupidness seemed an act if inspiration, every cruelty part of a devine scheme." WINNER of the National Book Award (American Book Award for first fiction). Dustjacket praise by Barry Hannah, Joy Williams and Robert Stome.
