The New York Times Best Sellers - When Lane Coolman's car is bashed from behind on the road to the Florida Keys, what appears to be an ordinary accident is anything but (this is Hiaasen!). Behind the wheel of the other car is Merry Mansfield–the eponymous Razor Girl–and the crash scam is only the beginning of events that spiral crazily out of control while unleashing some of the wildest characters Hiaasen has ever set loose on the page.

Carl Hiaasen - Key Largo
Italian | Mondadori | EPUB | Pages: N/A | ISBN: 880436212X | 1992 | 3 Mb

"Key Largo" è il romanzo duro, appassionate, senza scrupoli che ha confermato che il suo autore Carl Hiaasen come l'esponente di punta di quella frangia di scrittori che si pongono il divertimento altrui come primo e assoluto obiettivo.
Joe Winder, ex giornalista d'assalto, è impiegato presso l'Ufficio di Pubbliche Relazioni della Amazing Kingdom of Thrills, un parco di divertimenti di Key Largo, Florida, il cui proprietario, Francis X. Kingsbury, accarezza il sogno malato di battere Disney sul suo stesso terreno. Però, a Key Largo, tutto sembra molto noioso e banale. Finché il furto di due rare arvicole fa improvvisamente precipitare gli eventi. Il furto, organizzato da una ricca vedova ambientalista, si rivela una catastrofe, perché i due animaletti muoiono. E' il primo anello di una catena di eventi che travolgono Winder, gli altri strambi personaggi e anche il lettore.

Dance of the Reptiles by Carl Hiaasen
Vintage | 2014 | ISBN: 0345807022 | 416 pages | EPUB | 6 MB

If you think the wildest, wackiest stories that Carl Hiaasen can tell have all made it into his hilarious, bestselling novels, think again. Dance of the Reptiles collects the best of Hiaasen’s Miami Herald columns, which lay bare the stories–large and small–that demonstrate anew that truth is far stranger than fiction. Hiaasen offers his commentary—indignant, disbelieving, sometimes righteously angry, and frequently hilarious—on burning issues like animal welfare, polluted rivers, and the broken criminal justice system as well as the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, Bernie Madoff's trial, and the shenanigans of the recent presidential elections. Whether or not you have read Carl Hiaasen before, you are in for a wild ride.

Here is Hiaasen doing what he does better than anyone else: spinning a tale at once fiercely pointed and wickedly funny in which the greedy, the corrupt, and the degraders of what’s left of pristine Florida—now, of the Bahamas as well—get their comeuppance in mordantly ingenious, diabolically entertaining fashion.

Publisher: Berkley Trade | ISBN: 0425186067 | edition 2002 | PDF | 424 pages | 1,76 mb

The Florida Chamber of Commerce undoubtedly has a dart-pocked photograph of syndicated Miami Herald columnist Hiaasen tacked to the wall. For his second anthology of 200 columns, spanning 15 years, he takes readers on a head-shaking romp through a south Florida that they won't find in any tourist brochure. A true Florida patriot, Hiaasen exposes corruption, money-grubbing and rampant development. The volume picks up where its predecessor Kick Ass: Selected Columns of Carl Hiaasen left off. Stevenson, associate director of writing programs at the University of Florida, again edits. Hiaasen's writing is fearless and the targets endless: politicians, municipal employees, judges, lobbyists, zoning boards, evangelists, athletic franchises, environmental scofflaws, Disney, the NRA, Big Tobacco. In many cases, Hiaasen took these entities to task before it became fashionable.

“Fans of Carl Hiaasen will feel right at home when they plunge into Star Island. There’s the familiar collection of deliciously tawdry characters, each angling for a piece of the action in Florida . . . And there’s the fast-moving plot, and the writing that makes you laugh out loud . . . Hiaasen has turned out another gem. Readers of his previous novels can settle in for more wacky fun in the Florida sun.”
