Kurt Vonnegut

If you don’t go to the Miami Book Fair, you will make the ghost of Kurt Vonnegut even crankier.

With the Miami Book Fair International underway, we asked Nathaniel Sandler (a regular Beached Miami contributor) and David Gonzalez — the gentlemen behind the mobile library we told you about back in July — to give our readers their top five recommendations.
