J. Lee Glassman is a South Florida poet, musician and novelist. He's also a man of two worlds; those disparate entities being Palm Beach and Key West. While he might be better known to our readers as Luna Rex's rhythm guitarist, Glassman is also the author of a 2008 collection of poetry Sloppy Poems and Other Senseless Banter Barely Worthy of a Bar Napkin that reflects in short bursts what he has gone on to explore in the larger novel treatment.
His newest endeavor, Jonny Bails Floatin and the Luck of the Bioluminescence, goes on to explore the quirks of Key West living through the title character Jonny Bails; a hard-drinking street performer with a night fishing problem who gets himself into a bioluminescent fix whilst enduring the (un)wanted knack for discovering bales of weed at sea and transient love. We had the chance to speak with Glassman about his book and his South Florida experience.
