From the reviews of his previous books: 'This is comic crime at its best... Impeccable bad taste... evoking the rageful satire of Carl Hiaasen and the malicious vindictiveness of Hunter S. Thompson.' Guardian 'I almost exploded with laughter... it's manic, hysterical and puts Dorsey well up there with the cream of the comic writers who seem to have made Florida the centre for satirising America in the 21st century.' Independent on Sunday 'Over the top, absurd and hilarious.' Time Out 'Makes Carl Hiaasen's stuff look like something by Barbara Cartland.' Daily Mirror
About Tim Dorsey
Tim Dorsey grew up in Riviera Beach on Florida's southeast coast, and for several years worked as a journalist on the night desk of the Tampa Tribune, where his duties included sorting through endless reports of brutal and strange crimes. Humour is a natural defence reaction to editing this parade of dysfunction, violence and stupidity, and it led to a surreal, Florida-noir way of looking at things that found its outlet in his own highly original style of fiction.
