American Tropic

Editorial reviews

American Tropic

American Tropic is not unlike what one might expect from, say, Tim Dorsey or Tom Robbins after several months of Adderall therapy, though the tone is far more grim than any of those gentlemen’s tomes. Still, the book shares the somewhat surreal atmosphere of Dorsey’s settings...

Sanchez is correct, of course, in his view of the challenged environment of Key West and the greedy and corrupt people responsible, but at moments American Tropic makes a James Bond movie seem subtle by comparison.

This neatly plotted book with an exotic setting rises to the level of ferocious dramatic polemic against some of the worst crimes against nature - and, by extension, humanity.
