Video Q&A

Author Jeff Klinkenberg on his book, Alligators in B-Flat

| 8/14/2013

Jeff Klinkenberg, author of Alligators in B-Flat: Improbable Tales from the Files of Real Florida, tells the tale behind the name of the book in this short video Q & A with Florida Trend. 

Alligators in B-Flat is a collection of essays about Florida -- a civilized place with eighteen million residents and all of the modern amenities one might expect -- and also home to panthers, bears, rattlesnakes, and alligators. In this book, Klinkenberg sets his sights on the contradictions that comprise the Sunshine State. Jeff Klinkenberg grew up in Miami, began working in newspapers at age sixteen, and has been writing for the Tampa Bay Times since 1977. He is a two-time winner of the Paul Hansell Distinguished Journalism Award, the highest honor given by the Florida Society of Newspaper Editors.
