It's every parrothead's dream: to leave behind the rat race of the workaday world and start life all over again amidst the cool breezes, sun-drenched colors, and rum-laced drinks of a tropical paradise. It's the story of Norman Paperman, a New York City press agent who, facing the onset of middle age, runs away to a Caribbean island to reinvent himself as a hotel keeper. (Hilarity and disaster -- of a sort peculiar to the tropics -- ensue.) It's the novel in which the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of such acclaimed and bestselling novels as The Caine Mutiny and War and Remembrance draws on his own experience (Wouk and his family lived for seven years on an island in the sun) to tell a story at once brilliantly comic and deeply moving.… (mer)

1.5, the .5 for the setting.
This story was hard to like, because the protagonist was a double-standard SOB. The ending sucked. The author was homophobic. I looked up the Jimmy Buffett song about this, and it's ridiculous. More later. ( )

Here's what I wrote after reading in 1988: "Excellent reading for the trip home from the U.S. Virgin Islands! It seems without any signifcant message other than "Carnival is very sweet, please don't stop the Carnival". Translation? Life is sweet, let's keep living it. Most memorable character? The ficticious Caribbean island of Kinja, with its crazy politics and relationships and generally laid-back mode of life." Seems like I enjoyed the read but have no memory of it. ( )

I was somewhat disappointed by this book. I had read some of the authors historical works and while i knew that this was a humorous departure, I expected more.
Norman Paperman, a New Yorker decides to go to the Caribbean and buy a resort that he will manage as an escape from his NYC theatre life. Of course managing this resort is not as easy as it appears and every possible trouble befalls him. It is humorous at times but falls flat at others. ( )

In my opinion, not one of HW's better books. a writer living it up in the idyllic Caribbean, has to examine the state of his marriage and the effect of American Tourism and colonialism on a nice little island hideaway. Not very interesting, to my older self. ( )
