Book plug

Cory Doctorow of Boing Boing just listened to the audiobook of Carl Hiaasen's latest novel, Nature Girl, and loved it. In a nutshell:
Hiaasen is my favorite crime writer of all time, an hilarious absurdist whose experiences as a columnist for the Miami Herald provide him with a bottomless supply of rounders, cads, fools and patsies for the cast of characters in his books.

Yup. Working as a Miami journalist gives you a fine appreciation for the absurdity of life. This is probably my favorite Hiaasen book of all so far.
