Craig Pittman is the New York Times bestselling author of OH FLORIDA! HOW AMERICA’S WEIRDEST STATE INFLUENCES THE REST OF THE COUNTY and three other books as well as an award-winning journalist. He is a native Floridian and in 2013 wrote a popular blog for Slate called “Oh, Florida! ” which became the genesis for this book, and which led to his appearance on TV and radio discussing why Florida is so odd and entertaining. He lives in St. Petersburg with his wife and two children.
