In these offbeat short stories, "Driftwood Houses" belongs squarely in the comic tradition of Florida Fiction. It exposes and celebrates the daily ironies, heartbreaks and triumphs of ordinary people as they fumble through the challenges of everyday existence.
In a Key West setting these struggles are personified by a dizzying array of characters, each one masterfully sketched. All of them grapple with internal and external forces to realize their dreams. Each has his or her own story, yet all the tales are interconnected. Some show victory, some defeat. You will laugh with some, perhaps shed a tear with others.
Taken together these comic, ironic slices of life dramatize the successes and setbacks we all experience as we battle our fates in a world that seems uncertain and often unjust. Our struggles reveal how much we affirm the value of our lives.
