Carmen Mirandas Ghost

Carmen Mirandas Ghost is Haunting Space Station 3, the book!

Carmen Miranda, was a Portuguese-born Brazilian samba singer and actress popular in the 1940s and 1950s.  Dubbed The Brazilian Bombshell, she was the highest-earning woman in the United States at the time and is famous for the fruit hat outfit she wore in the 1943 movie The Gang's All Here.

As we can see from the cover of the book Carmen Miranda was not content with being dead and is livin un-lavida loca in space.   The astronaut appears quite shocked to see Carmen Mirandas gigantic apparition singing  her Tico-Tico no Fubá from The Copacabana Film, while using the space station like some sort of carnival hula hoop, and quite rightly so.

This book is a collecton of short stories, there's also a song and album released by one of the authors, Leslie Fish, with a similar title.

No it's not a book on tape.
