About the Book:
Eons ago, long before the world was created, long before there were people, or animals, or trees, or the immeasurable ocean to the east, or the endless Everglades to the west, or the great mountain of Tropical Park, or pastelitos, or Radio Mambí, there was only darkness and cold. And in this darkness slept Pachango the Creator, on his divine pin pan pun.
Hilarious, poignant, unabashedly, authentically Miami, The Miami Creation Myth builds a wholly unique universe of gods, heroes, and legends inspired by the insanity that is living in South Florida.
From Pachango the Creator’s decision to rise from his divine pin pan pun and turn on the sun, to the arrival of hundred-foot tall construction cranes that pound neighborhoods to dust before replacing them with glass and steel nests, these modern legends explain, celebrate, and lampoon what makes Miami a globally unique city.
