The Collected Fat represents the very best writing from one
of the most outrageous writers in the Caribbean. Cap’n Fatty will enthrall you with his rollicking tales of Lush Tropical Vegetables, Wonderful Waterfront Wackos, and Colorful Caribbean Characters.
A number of these stories will make you laugh. A few will touch your heart. One might change you, ever-so-slightly, forever.
Seadogs,Clowns,& Gypsies is more than just a book about the remarkable lifestyle of various Caribbean sailors. It is a Celebration of a Way of Life. The people who inhabit these salt-stained pages(“We’re all here, because we’re not all there!”) have a true Lust for Living. They kiss life full on the lips, embrace each new day, welcome every fresh sensation.
