Don't Stop the Carnival by Herman Wouk

It's the story of Norman Paperman, a New York City press agent who, facing the onset of middle age, runs away to a Caribbean island to reinvent himself as a hotel keeper. (Hilarity and disaster -- of a sort peculiar to the tropics -- ensue.)
Don't Stop the Carnival
Wouk draws on his own experience (Wouk and his family lived for seven years on an island in the sun) to tell this story.
