book o’ the month

Finished this one up awhile ago, but thought it deserved further mention. The book is Herman Wouk’s “Don’t Stop The Carnival“. Set on the ficticious Caribbean island of Amerigo, but closely modelled on the St. Thomas of the early 60’s, this book hilariously deals with the somtimes manic life of the Virgin Islands. Even dated, the book abounds with details that still ring true today, and ought to be required reading for anyone looking at any sort of serious involvement with the VI. i’m now fairly certain that everyone i know here has read it at least once. Jimmy Buffet even adapted it and made it into a musical. Go figger.
