Naked Came the Manatee Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Naked Came the Manatee

Written by thirteen notable Florida writers, it weaves a somewhat schizophrenic tale of a plot to do away with Fidel Castro. Characters are introduced at the whim of each author, responsible solely for each of the book's thirteen chapters. This makes for a frenetic read as each writer takes his/her own spin on the strange events. A manatee is the only constant that holds the story together.
