Making Good Time: True Stories of How We Do, and Don’t, Get Around in South Florida, is an anthology of more than thirty Miami transit-related stories, edited by Lynne Barrett. 31 true transit stories by 32 award-winning South Florida writers. Join us for a conversation between six of the authors of Making Good Time.
“If you’ve ever tried to get from one place to another in South Florida, you will love this book.”
– T.D. Allman, author of Miami: City of the Future
“Hold on to your roof mattresses: Making Good Time is a loving, alarming, definitive collection of only-in-Miami road tales. Some of South Florida’s most treasured writers tackle one of its true miseries—and now I’m nostalgic for I-95 traffic.”
– Kenny Malone, Co-host of NPR’s Planet Money
“Making Good Time” takes us inside a car broken down on the side of an off-ramp, a divorce occurring in real time on a county bus, and a house being robbed by boat. A collection of wonderful true stories, the book imaginatively illustrates how our cities, infrastructures, and the way we get around shape our destinies and our lives.”
– Richard Florida, author of The Rise of the Creative Class
