Description

Is Miami, with its Spanish-speaking neighbourhoods, its trendy Deco beach scene, its heat, dust and drag queens, truly a part of America - or is it more like Mars? Is it simply the home of vice, violence and Mickey Mouse - paradise with a lobotomy - or might it be a spiritual place? Alexander Stuart left Brighton for Miami six years ago to rebuild his life following the death of his son. What he found when he got there was a land of transformation, a place where people come to reinvent their lives, to escape from the past or themselves, or even reality. This book explores the eccentric extremes of Florida, and paints a skewed, off-beat portrait of where the world may be heading.show more
