Considering we live in Key West, when I go into the book store I rarily if ever look at the 'touristy' books. While standing in line waiting to pay for my daughters new books, there was "Confessions of a Key West Cabby" next to the register. I flipped through it while waiting to be rung up and at the last second threw it in the pile. When I got home I started reading and did not put the book down till I was finished. Mr. Suib managed to introduce me to people and places in Key West that I never knew existed, or that I took for granted every day. Now I have his book in the back seat of my car as I drive around on daily errands I look around for that Pink Cab (and they are EVERYWHERE) with Michael Suib so I can score and autograph. Worth a read, over and over again for visitors, locals and wishful thinkers everywhere.

This book should be savored over a couple of weeks....... a story a day max. It should be used like a smile machine. When you think you can't find any humor in the daily grind of life, pop it open and consume a couple of minutes of a poet/story teller/taxi drivers take on life.

I have been a faithful reader of Michael's column in the Miami Herald for as long as I can remember; this book contains the "best of his best" personal insights about the people who both live and visit this very special island.
You'll see your friends and enemies, your family and yourself in his delightfully written characters. Best if all, you'll be transported to Key West page by page - in all of its insanity and beauty.
Want to escape and take a quick trip? Buy this book - and buy one for a friend!

These snippets of Key West life are heartwarming, amusing, sad, and most evidently, real. After a dozen trips to Key West - running the gamut between drunken debauchery and mindless relaxation - I like to read everything about the island that I can. I've read novels, histories, guidebooks, but never anything quite like this.

Suib shows you the side of Key West that you either momentarily glance at or ignore completely, but a side that is there, and prevalent for those who live on the island year-round. Whether tales of colorful tourists, street entertainers or homeless, he fits poignancy into almost every 800-word vignette.

In reading the book, you're reminded that even the most escapist destinations for the rest of us are home and daily life for others. The characters in this book are real people, and likely a reflection of your own hometown - if you take the time to look.

Suib captures the essence of living on a 4x2 mile island while driving people around; the vignettes are short--perfect for when you only have a couple minutes, OR you can dive right in and read a bunch of them. Either way works. That's the 411 on this book.
