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 goals unending: politicians, municipal staff, judges, lobbyists, zoning forums, evangelists, athletic franchises, environmental scofflaws, Disney, the NRA, gigantic Tobacco. . . . Pulls no punches and retains his humorousness and outrage firmly intact."--Publishers Weekly

"These sharp, a laugh items make sure Hiaasen's prestige as a chicken so rare--the funny renowned 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, traditional humans and amazing humans, and many simply undeniable south Florida weirdness. . . . besides Kick Ass, this is among the most sensible collections of occasional journalism released in fresh years."--Booklist (starred review)
