"A heartfelt, complex counter to all those #FloridaMan jokes."

"We Can't Help It If We're From Florida is as hot and wild and dangerous as our beloved (or is it bedeviled?) state, itself. While no book could ever fully explain the mysteries of today's Sunshine State, this smart chorus of varied and brilliant voices comes as close as any I've read."
-LAUREN GROFF, Fates & Furies

"A geographic mixtape that spans the Panhandle to Key West, here is that uniquely Floridian madness as seen from the eye of the hurricane. Thank God, here's something Florida can feel proud to have produced. New work that's as weird and funny and beautiful and unnerving as you might expect from some of our state's best writers. Whether you grew up on the Gulf or are still repressing a lost weekend in Daytona, you'll nd plenty to enjoy here."
-KAREN RUSSELL, Swamplandia!

"Florida can kill you at any time, and in the 20 stories, poems, and essays that follow, we see exactly how: ominous clouds 'like tight bruised fists, ' lightning strikes that could contribute to a 'Floridian way to die, ' and even brain-eating amoeba."
- NICK MORAN for The Millions

"Vivid scenes in each piece provide both nostalgic and newly discovered images of Florida's landscape and culture."
