9780156026987: Tales from Margaritaville: Fictional Facts and Factual Fictions

Margaritaville may not appear on a map, but it does exist--at least in the brilliantly creative, sometimes slightly skewed imagination of Jimmy Buffett. Tales from Margaritaville is a collection of short stories (some purely fiction, some based in truth) so vividly packed with restless dreamers, wild wanderers, and pure gypsy souls that just reading it is a wild adventure. Travel along with a cowboy named Tully Mars, as he heads from Heartache, Wyoming, to Graceland, and relive the autobiographical odyssey of a third-generation sailor and first-rate musical outlaw. With unforgettable stories that present the true roamer's twin loves--the sea and the road--Tales from Margaritaville is one "smooth sailing book of infinite imagination" (Chicago Sun-Times).

From the Publisher:

Having grown up on Jimmy Buffett's songs in the '70s, especially Margaritaville and Cheeseburger in Paradise, I read with interest his first book "Tales from Margaritaville". Not surprisingly, it had the same wonderful style and spirit of his songs--funny, original, free-spirited. It seemed to me that Jimmy Buffett was truly living--and chronicling-- the American Dream. But what I found most interesting was a story I heard during one of his first bookstore signings (in Virginia or Georgia, I think). The day of the book-signing, hundreds and hundreds of people showed up and the line snaked around several blocks. But what was truly interesting was the mix of people--teenagers, aging hippies, moms and dads, blue-haired old ladies--all proud to call themselves "Parrotheads". Buffett's new book "A Pirate Looks at Fifty" is currently a bestseller proving that Jimmy Buffett's appeal is as timeless as he is.
--Maureen O'Neal

From the Inside Flap:

"Entertaining....The whole volume is a tribute to Buffett's storytelling skills and his essentially sunny, manana-influenced worldview."
THE HOUSTON POST
Just where is Margaritaville anyway? It's not on a map, but it does exist, in the brilliantly creative, sometimes slightly skewed imagination of Jimmy Buffett. Now the man who brought us such memorable hit tunes as "Cheeseburger in Paradise," "Changes in Lattitudes, Changes in Attitudes," and "Margaritaville," has turned his singular talent to writing short stories, some fictional, some not. The happy result is TALES FROM MARGARITAVILLE, a collection so vividly packed with restless dreamers, wild wanderers and pure gypsy souls that just reading it is an adventure itself.
