Reviews

The Thing about Florida will change your mind about the Sunshine State."--Salon

"Gillespie's portraits . . . don't stop at the news-bite surface. . . . His writing is witty, but never mean; he's looking for the human beings behind the headlines, and he finds them."--Tampa Bay Times

"The collected interviews and observations give us some insight, perspective and, even better, welcome levity and wit."--Orlando Weekly

"A personalized, amusing book about what makes the Sunshine State so unique."--Foreword Reviews

"Add this to your Florida books list."--Book Riot
