If you’re looking for a good book to read this winter (or anytime for that matter), pick up a copy of Herman Wouk’s “Don’t Stop The Carnival“.
And while you’re at it, pick up a copy of Jimmy Buffett’s CD, with the same title, “Don’t Stop The Carnival” (which was also performed as a musical).Â It takes you on a musical ride through the trials and tribulations of Norman Paperman’s middle-aged crisis in the Caribbean.
To quote Buffett from the first track of the disc, “The Legend of Norman Paperman/Kinja”:
“Have you ever dreamed of escaping from your dull existence to a new life on a tropical island? Our story is about a man who did it – a real person, whose true adventure has become a legend here in the Caribbean. Welcome one and all to THE LEGEND OF NORMAN PAPERMAN.”
