Description

“As hot and wild and dangerous as our beloved
(or is it bedeviled?) state, itself.”
– Lauren Groff, author of Fates & Furies

 “As weird and funny and beautiful and unnerving as you might expect from some of our state’s best writers.”
– Karen Russell, author of Swamplandia!


Featuring new work by: 
Lidia Yuknavitch, Sarah Gerard, Kevin Moffett, Laura van den Berg, Lindsay Hunter, John Brandon, Jaquira Díaz, Alissa Nutting & so many more!

Synopsis: Florida is more than just fodder for hard-boiled crime novels and zany farces. This anthology of new stories and essays challenges a star-studded line up of current and former Floridians to write about the state through a literary lens, though not without the requisite weirdness. The Florida within this book contains: lightning, oil spills, road rage, a lizard tied to a balloon, swimmers, sleepwalkers, characters that love Florida, characters that hate Florida, and at least three sinkholes.
