Paradise Screwed: Selected Columns of Carl Hiaasen

Carl Hiaasen

"Takes readers on a head-shaking romp via a south Florida that they might not locate in any vacationer brochure. . . . Hiaasen's writing is brave and the objectives never-ending: politicians, municipal staff, judges, lobbyists, zoning forums, evangelists, athletic franchises, environmental scofflaws, Disney, the NRA, titanic Tobacco. . . . Pulls no punches and retains his humorousness and outrage firmly intact."--Publishers Weekly

"These sharp, a laugh items be certain Hiaasen's prestige as a chicken so rare--the funny well known novelist with an acutely severe social perspective--that he is virtually an endangered species."--Kirkus Reviews

"He writes approximately politics and politicians, crime and criminals, usual humans and notable humans, and many simply simple south Florida weirdness. . . . besides Kick Ass, this is likely one of the most sensible collections of occasional journalism released in fresh years."--Booklist (starred review)
