|Plot Summary of Naked Came the Manatee|
|"Written by thirteen notable Florida writers, it weaves a somewhat schizophrenic tale of a plot to do away with Fidel Castro. Characters are introduced at the whim of each author, responsible solely for each of the book's thirteen chapters. This makes for a frenetic read as each writer takes his/her own spin on the strange events. A manatee is the only constant that holds the story together."
Reginald D. Garrard, Resident Scholar
