9780813049236: Miami: City of the Future, Revised Edition

“An exuberant portrait of the city.”—New York Times Book Review

 

“Superbly reported and deftly written.”—Business Week

 

“An extraordinary look at an extraordinary city.”—Edward James Olmos, actor and director, Miami Vice

 

“As entertaining and as distracting as the city itself.”—Washington Times

 

“After reading this book, I still don’t understand what makes Miami what it is, but that’s why I love this book and that crazy town.”—Jimmy Buffett, singer and songwriter

 

“A delightfully unbuttoned paean to ‘Babel on Biscayne Bay.’ . . . As complex, compelling, and colorful as the city it celebrates.”—Kirkus

 

“Not only does T. D. Allman’s portrait of Miami remain, a quarter century later, as smart and funny and keenly observed as it was upon its first publication day, it is vibrantly current and astonishingly prescient. Miami resonates far beyond its immediate subject and illuminates deep truths about America’s—and, indeed, the world’s—twenty-first-century cultural and political turmoil. Not incidentally, Allman’s brilliant prose style endures as well. The book is a joy to read.”—Robert Olen Butler, author of A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain

 

With trenchant observations and witty prose, T. D. Allman takes readers on a tour of Miami’s people, cultures, politics, and neighborhoods. This twenty-fifth anniversary edition remains a classic guide to a city teeming with money, exotic cargo, illegal drugs, and immigrants from all corners of the world.

About the Author:

T. D. Allman’s work has appeared in Rolling Stone, the New York Times,the Washington Post, Vanity Fair, Harper’s, Reader’s Digest, and National Geographic, among many other publications. He is the author most recently of Finding Florida: The True History of the Sunshine State.

From Library Journal:

Even though Allman was born in Tampa, he's spent the major part of his adult life elsewhere and thus brings a distanced, critical perspective to this treatment of "Miami, the magic city." Drawn to Miami for an interesting story, Allman fleshes out his first-hand account of contemporary Miami with historical research. Rather than clutter the text with footnotes Allman has appended chapter notes documenting his sources. Quirkily, he persistently ignores Miami Beach's independent city status. Allman paints a vivid portrait of a city in flux and turmoil, rising above its racial problems, both frightening and exciting, and Americanizing its multiethnic mix of Anglos, blacks, Cubans, Haitians, and others. Recommended for public and academic libraries. Susan Hamburger, Florida State Univ. Lib., Tallahassee
