Carl Hiaasen : Sunshine State Satirist Paperback / softback
Carl Hiaasen is one of America's most inventive and entertaining writers.
He has been variously described as "one of the funniest crime writers to come along in decades," "America's finest satirical novelist," and a "great American writer about the great American subjects of ambition, greed, vanity, and disappointment." A columnist for the Miami Herald for over thirty years and an award-winning author of several young-adult novels, he's best known for the fourteen crime novels he's published since 1986.
His distinctive blend of crime, outrageous humor, and biting satire gives his books an appeal that extends beyond just mystery fans to include readers who enjoy comic fiction as well as those interested in novels that address serious social and environmental issues. This, the first book-length study of Hiaasen, takes a close look at all his writing, from his earliest days as a reporter and later a columnist for the Miami Herald to his current status as bestselling author of novels both for adults and young readers.
While much of his writing focuses on his beloved state of Florida, his work has a universal appeal that has earned him a global audience of avid fans.
