Author Info
Carl Hiaasen
Carl Hiaasen graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in journalism in 1974 and began writing for the Miami Herald in 1976. Since then he has earned a stellar reputation as an investigative reporter, uncovering political corruption, local conspiracies, and drug dealing in South Florida. Nominated for the Pulitzer Prize numerous times for his probing column in the Herald, Hiaasen turned to writing mysteries with "Tourist Season", his debut novel published in 1986. He has continued to write a series of darkly comic novels set in his native Florida, including "Strip Tease", which was made into a film starring Demi Moore and Burt Reynolds. Hiaasen has also dabbled in songwriting, co-writing two songs on Warren Zevon's album "Mutineer".
"Just when you think Hiaasen can't outdo himself, he finds more lunatics who just happen to tap into your deepest fears about America. Makes you wonder."
"Hiaasen's commentary on wacky, paved-over Florida is both cheerful and scathing, the emerging love story joyful. He has a serious message--about racism, the environment and a wasteful culture--but it's sabotaged by his reliance on cheap gags."
"Hiaasen writes witty dialogue that crackles, and his characters are eccentrically colorful. For the most part he is able to keep all his balls in the air, though occasionally he drops one and the plot flags....And, by the time we reach the end, exhaustion has set in, along with a sense that maybe we've been had and that Hiaasen has run out of steam. But never mind. The trip is entertaining and worrisome enough to make you think twice before making that next trip down to Florida."
"This time out, Hiaasen develops his plot just fast enough to hold the reader's attention yet slow enough for the author to squirt black bile at targets he thinks deserving."
