This book reads like a retro IFC series about the Florida Keys. The believable abominations that come out of characters' mouths are outrageous, often super-wry and funny, and come thick and fast. If I read it again, I might find upgrade my review to 5 stars, but at the moment I must admit to experiencing some irritation with the last 50 pages or so. ( )

Then the strangest questions
are asked, which no human
could answer: Why there
is only one such animal, why
I rather than anybody else
should own it, whether there
was ever an animal like it
before and what would happen
if it died, whether it feels
lonely, why it has no children,
what it is called, etc.

—Franz Kafka, "Cross Breeze"
