A celebration of the life and work of Key West artist Mario Sanchez (1908-2005) with 55 full-color reproductions of his intagliospainted relief carvings The art of Mario Sanchez--showing street vendors, parades, rumba bands, cigar factories, ice-cream trucks, people out for a stroll--has become symbolic of the picturesque diversity of Key West life in the early-mid 20th century. Sanchez portrayed neighborhood places and events where he grew up, exhibiting his love for Florida's easy island living. His work also depicts Tampa's Latin community, Ybor City, with the same textured, quirky quality. His work brings to life the diversity and charm of colorful neighborhood life. The vendors hawk their wares, the trolleys move and rattle, the people gossip and haggle, the dogs bark, the bells ring, and children run with their kites. This compelling art has become highly collectible.

Miami, Only Worse is an entertaining story describing many of the social, bureaucratic and business outrages plaguing 21st century America—every day events that leave us shaking our heads and shaking in our pants. The pace is fast, captivating, and the tale is told in a rather eccentric humor—for after all, the setting is Miami, where sanity ceased quite some time ago, only to be replaced by an inexplicable and highly comical neurosis.

Many a book has been written about Key West, but there has never been anything like Stetson Kennedy's Grits & Grunts, a portrait of the Key West that was. Neither a history (though you will learn a lot about Key West's unique past) nor a guidebook (though you will learn more about Key West than any guides offer), Grits & Grunts is a treasure trove gleaned from the rich multiculture that came to full-flower on “The Rock” during the first half of the twentieth century, “when Key West was Key West.” You'll find an abundant sampling of the inimitable art of Mario Sanchez, whose carved bas-relief paintings of Key West street scenes are in great demand around the world, as well as many never-before-published photographs. The overflowing Key West songbag is also here in all its abundance, from lullabies to traditional ballads, as well as games and folktales.
