The highly popular singer-songwriter presents a number-one
Perhaps the world's most famous beach bum, and certainly one of the most financially well-set, Jimmy Buffett lives a life that's the envy of his many fans. His loveable everyman persona is displayed to good effect in A PIRATE LOOKS AT FIFTY, a combination of memoir, travel book, and mid-life crisis antidote that's as endearing and entertaining as the man himself. Buffett's combination of salty common sense, easygoing humor, phenomenal good luck, and the ability to turn all of these into palatable songwriting material have earned him the freedom to live, if not exactly as he pleases, at least with enough freedom to give himself the 50th birthday gift of loading up a plane and flying around the Caribbean with a full complement of family and friends. He writes about the resulting adventures and past events in his own life, both hilarious and poignant, in a dryly humorous, semi-rueful, head-shaking fashion, unsurprised by his own failings and constantly amazed after each escapade that he's gotten away with it yet again.
