Don’t Stop The Carnival: a Jimmy Buffet favorite

This book is said to be loosely based on Herman Wouk’s experiences in managing an actual hotel, the Royal Mail Inn, in the early 1960s in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. The hotel was on Hassel Island, located in Charlotte Amalie Harbour.

One of Jimmy Buffet’s favorite books, in his A Pirate Looks At Fifty (his memoir of an aeronautical circumnavigation of the Caribbean shortly after his fiftieth birthday) he mentions working to have it developed as a musical.

A “must have” in your Books For The Beach And Boat library.
