He seemed to be alone; and he came to wonder what was becoming of him. There was a liquid window filling with silver light; and just over the sill he could see the crown of a palm tree moistly easing itself into his view. Thus he knew he was on the second floor

Comments to eBook Ninety-two in the Shade
Lavivan
THE definitive Key West nuthouse guide. Not about gays, but about those who dribble down the keys on their way to nowhere. It's about bugs, heat, crazy people straight out of Tennessee Williams, drinking too much, tropical lust and romance, and weird family relations. The equal of Carl Hiaasen. I lived in Key West for fifteen years, on the beach and on the water, and in teeny jammed-together shacks.

Those who know and love Key West will find a world of excellent insight in this novel. The style was a revelation at the time and McGuane knows the locale and the people on a molecular level. No guesswork here just a real interesting trip into the minds and souls of an unforgettable group of people. And I thought my family was screwy.

While this novel portrays exotic behavior and Key West fish guiding (talk about redundancy), murder, crime, it is not really a comic novel, a crime novel or even that elusive genre - the "Keys Novel." Maybe it can be classified as an "Old Hippie" novel; certainly there is a touch of that, but there is also a touch of the "Old Florida" novel with eccentric, elderly relatives with cash and the political fix. The tale progresses in a halucinatory mix of events. Simply stated young conch wants to get into the guide business, faces dual problems of not enough room for more guides and cost of boat, from which conflict flows. There are some nice scenes of excess in passion and alcohol. There is also the desperate, ends of the earth, behavior of island inhabitants: in this case people do what they say they will do, which can be a very bad thing. What plot there is can best be described as ecclectic. Read it and remember the eighties.

Really enjoyed the cast of characters! Nothing is held back in this story. The ending, while not entirely a surprise, works well.
Enone
Fascinating insights into the 'guiding' community in/around Key West, Florida. Humor, tragedy, fishing, travelogue (life in the shadows in Key West) - this book has it all. One wonders if such characters still exist or if they have floated away on the tide of time.
Xal
