DON'T STOP THE CARNIVAL is Herman Wouk's comedy about living out your fantasies on an exotic Caribbean island. Norman Paperman, a successful Broadway publicity agent, has long dreamed of escaping his high-pressure Manhattan life. In a fit of bravado, he chucks it all and buys an old hotel on tiny, primitive, lush Amerigo island.
"Exuberant comedy, spiced with sex and tragedy"-Daily Telegraph
If you've ever listened to Jimmy Buffett's CD "Don't Stop the Carnival", this is where he found the story about Norman Paperman. I heard the CD first, then found this book on PBS and was curious. I'm happy to say the book is very entertaining, fast reading, and is a perfect match with Buffett's music.
