Easy in the Islands is a collection of nine short stories set in the Caribbean. The stories are lush, sensual, and filled with the simplicity and complexity of island life.
In the title story, Easy in the Islands, Tillman, a hotellier tries to weave through the morass of island bureaucracy to inter his dead mother, who lies in the hotel's freezer.
In Lord Short Shoe Wants a Monkey, a calypso star uses his stunning back up singer to entice a man to give up his prized monkey to use in this act.
Sometimes vulgar, often funny, these and the other stories range in location from Miami to Barbados to small rum shops on small islands.
