Reviews
"These stories . . . focus on people, a cross section of Floridians closely observed and written about with humor and empathy. . . . The State You're In is a smart, entertaining and sometimes surprising look at a place that can make our blood boil one minute and enchant us the next."--Tampa Bay Times

"A variety of diverse, interesting Sunshine State tales. . .
. [Pittman] will make you laugh with some stories and leave you wondering about
how such a thing could happen in others."--Tampa Bay Magazine
"An
entertaining, fast-paced collection."--Tallahassee Democrat


"[A] romp of an anthology. . . . A quirky, considered meditation of Florida's absurdities, from its wildlife to its people."--Flamingo
