Key West has been a long-time writers' haven -- from Hemingway to Elizabeth Bishop to Tennessee Williams.
But it's also been an island of popular intrigue -- from the mystery novels of Laurence Shames to Stuart Woods, John Leslie, Tom Corcoran, John Hersey, Thomas McGuane, and Robert Stone.

"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed." - Hemingway
