Driftwood: Stories from the Margarita Road - Anthony Lee Head

Driftwood: Stories from the Margarita Road


If You've Ever Dreamed of Running Away to Paradise, This Book Will Spark Your Secret Wanderlust

These captivating stories follow modern-day nomads escaping the rat race in search of a fresh start. Fleeing boredom, bad marriages, and dead-end jobs, these adventurers wander south to Playa Paraiso-a lush, unspoiled village on Mexico's idyllic Caribbean coast. There they find the unpredictable, hedonistic, and sometimes frightening world of the tropics.


At the center of this extraordinary group is Poppa, the irreverent and savvy owner of the local beach bar. As he tries to make sense of his own vagabond existence, he offers his fellow expats booze, advice, and the occasional helping hand. It is Poppa who recounts the tales of these runaways from the rat race, as together they encounter devastating hurricanes, vicious drug dealers, true loves, charming rogues, clueless do-gooders, and so much more. Against a backdrop of stunning blue water and endless white sand, they experience the heart's tug of war between the need for a place to call home and the desire for the freedom to roam.


Author Anthony Lee Head is very familiar with the dream of the lifestyle portrayed in Driftwood: Stories from the Margarita Road. After leaving a long career as a San Francisco trial lawyer, he moved to Playa del Carmen, Mexico where for ten years he ran a small hotel and margarita bar near the beach.


Travelers, wanderers, explorers and dreamers alike will see themselves in these unforgettable characters, all the while craving an icy boat drink on a sprawling beach. But be careful: if you stick your feet in the sand and come along on this journey, you may not want to go home again.



"... Joseph Conrad collides with Jimmy Buffett in a journey through the dark heart of Mexico's Riviera Maya."

Bob Calhoun, bestselling author and journalist


"Truly wonderful and moving tales; the author is a writer to watch."

Kirkus Reviews (starred review)


"Beneath the 'palm and balmy breezes' tone, a deep, empathetic humanity affords each character and event vivid authenticity."

Peter Coyote, bestselling author and actor

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF 2020 BY KIRKUS REVIEWSHAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT OF JUST RUNNING AWAY FROM IT ALL?

In Driftwood: Stories from the Margarita Road, free-spirited Americans fleeing mundane and disappointing lives head south in search of a fresh start. When they end up in Playa Paraiso-a lush, unspoiled beach town on Mexico's idyllic Caribbean coast-they discover the hedonistic and unpredictable world of the tropics.

Poppa, the savvy, irreverent owner of the local beach bar, is always willing to lend an ear and a helping hand to his fellow expats. He tells their stories of life in paradise, as together they deal with love and loss, vicious drug dealers, charming rogues, encroaching civilization, and a devastating hurricane.

The book's interwoven vignettes explore the heart's tug of war between the need for a place to call home and the desire for the freedom to roam.

Reviewers say Driftwood mixes the charm of John Steinbeck, the excitement of Joseph Conrad, and the flip-flop escapism of Jimmy Buffett-all set against a backdrop of stunning blue water and endless white sand.

Author Anthony Lee Head lived the expat life for ten years. In a fit of middle-aged madness, he traded a long career as a San Francisco trial lawyer for an unknown adventure in a foreign land. He and his wife bought a rundown hostel a few blocks from the beach in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, which they transformed into a wildly popular hotel and bar. The characters they met there became the inspiration for Driftwood: Stories from the Margarita Road.

Travelers, wanderers, explorers, and dreamers alike will see themselves in these unforgettable tales, all the while craving an icy boat drink on a sprawling beach. But be careful: if you stick your feet in the sand and come along on this journey, you may not want to go home again.


"Truly wonderful and moving tales; the author is a writer to watch." Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF 2020 BY KIRKUS REVIEWSHAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT OF JUST RUNNING AWAY FROM IT ALL?

In Driftwood: Stories from the Margarita Road, free-spirited Americans fleeing mundane and disappointing lives head south in search of a fresh start. When they end up in Playa Paraiso-a lush, unspoiled beach town on Mexico's idyllic Caribbean coast-they discover the hedonistic and unpredictable world of the tropics.

Poppa, the savvy, irreverent owner of the local beach bar, is always willing to lend an ear and a helping hand to his fellow expats. He tells their stories of life in paradise, as together they deal with love and loss, vicious drug dealers, charming rogues, encroaching civilization, and a devastating hurricane.

The book's interwoven vignettes explore the heart's tug of war between the need for a place to call home and the desire for the freedom to roam.

Reviewers say Driftwood mixes the charm of John Steinbeck, the excitement of Joseph Conrad, and the flip-flop escapism of Jimmy Buffett-all set against a backdrop of stunning blue water and endless white sand.

Author Anthony Lee Head lived the expat life for ten years. In a fit of middle-aged madness, he traded a long career as a San Francisco trial lawyer for an unknown adventure in a foreign land. He and his wife bought a rundown hostel a few blocks from the beach in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, which they transformed into a wildly popular hotel and bar. The characters they met there became the inspiration for Driftwood: Stories from the Margarita Road.

Travelers, wanderers, explorers, and dreamers alike will see themselves in these unforgettable tales, all the while craving an icy boat drink on a sprawling beach. But be careful: if you stick your feet in the sand and come along on this journey, you may not want to go home again.

Descrierea produsului


If You've Ever Dreamed of Running Away to Paradise, This Book Will Spark Your Secret Wanderlust

These captivating stories follow modern-day nomads escaping the rat race in search of a fresh start. Fleeing boredom, bad marriages, and dead-end jobs, these adventurers wander south to Playa Paraiso-a lush, unspoiled village on Mexico's idyllic Caribbean coast. There they find the unpredictable, hedonistic, and sometimes frightening world of the tropics.


At the center of this extraordinary group is Poppa, the irreverent and savvy owner of the local beach bar. As he tries to make sense of his own vagabond existence, he offers his fellow expats booze, advice, and the occasional helping hand. It is Poppa who recounts the tales of these runaways from the rat race, as together they encounter devastating hurricanes, vicious drug dealers, true loves, charming rogues, clueless do-gooders, and so much more. Against a backdrop of stunning blue water and endless white sand, they experience the heart's tug of war between the need for a place to call home and the desire for the freedom to roam.


Author Anthony Lee Head is very familiar with the dream of the lifestyle portrayed in Driftwood: Stories from the Margarita Road. After leaving a long career as a San Francisco trial lawyer, he moved to Playa del Carmen, Mexico where for ten years he ran a small hotel and margarita bar near the beach.


Travelers, wanderers, explorers and dreamers alike will see themselves in these unforgettable characters, all the while craving an icy boat drink on a sprawling beach. But be careful: if you stick your feet in the sand and come along on this journey, you may not want to go home again.



"... Joseph Conrad collides with Jimmy Buffett in a journey through the dark heart of Mexico's Riviera Maya."

Bob Calhoun, bestselling author and journalist

The characters they met there became the inspiration for Driftwood: Stories from the Margarita Road.

Travelers, wanderers, explorers, and dreamers alike will see themselves in these unforgettable tales, all the while craving an icy boat drink on a sprawling beach. But be careful: if you stick your feet in the sand and come along on this journey, you may not want to go home again.


"Truly wonderful and moving tales; the author is a writer to watch." Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"What often starts as simply an entertaining tale ends with a message that resonates deeply. I hated for it to end. Grab a drink and a beach chair and settle in for an excellent escape." Betsy Andrews, Amazon reviewer

In Driftwood: Stories from the Margarita Road, free-spirited Americans fleeing mundane and disappointing lives head south in search of a fresh start. When they end up in Playa Paraiso-a lush, unspoiled beach town on Mexico's idyllic Caribbean coast-they discover the hedonistic and unpredictable world of the tropics.

Poppa, the savvy, irreverent owner of the local beach bar, is always willing to lend an ear and a helping hand to his fellow expats. He tells their stories of life in paradise, as together they deal with love and loss, vicious drug dealers, charming rogues, encroaching civilization, and a devastating hurricane.

The book's interwoven vignettes explore the heart's tug of war between the need for a place to call home and the desire for the freedom to roam.

Reviewers say Driftwood mixes the charm of John Steinbeck, the excitement of Joseph Conrad, and the flip-flop escapism of Jimmy Buffett-all set against a backdrop of stunning blue water and endless white sand.

The characters they met there became the inspiration for Driftwood: Stories from the Margarita Road.

Travelers, wanderers, explorers, and dreamers alike will see themselves in these unforgettable tales, all the while craving an icy boat drink on a sprawling beach. But be careful: if you stick your feet in the sand and come along on this journey, you may not want to go home again.


"Truly wonderful and moving tales; the author is a writer to watch." Kirkus Reviews (starred review)


"...a deep, empathic humanity affords each character and event vivid authenticity." Peter Coyote, bestselling author and actor


"What often starts as simply an entertaining tale ends with a message that resonates deeply. I hated for it to end. Grab a drink and a beach chair and settle in for an excellent escape." Betsy Andrews, Amazon reviewer


NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF 2020 BY KIRKUS REVIEWSHAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT OF JUST RUNNING AWAY FROM IT ALL?

In Driftwood: Stories from the Margarita Road, free-spirited Americans fleeing mundane and disappointing lives head south in search of a fresh start. When they end up in Playa Paraiso-a lush, unspoiled beach town on Mexico's idyllic Caribbean coast-they discover the hedonistic and unpredictable world of the tropics.

Poppa, the savvy, irreverent owner of the local beach bar, is always willing to lend an ear and a helping hand to his fellow expats. He tells their stories of life in paradise, as together they deal with love and loss, vicious drug dealers, charming rogues, encroaching civilization, and a devastating hurricane.

The book's interwoven vignettes explore the heart's tug of war between the need for a place to call home and the desire for the freedom to roam.

Reviewers say Driftwood mixes the charm of John Steinbeck, the excitement of Joseph Conrad, and the flip-flop escapism of Jimmy Buffett-all set against a backdrop of stunning blue water and endless white sand.
