Star Island, Carl's latest novel, was released July 27 and immediately opened at #2 on the New York Times bestseller list.
An actress secretly stands in for a derailed pop star and finds herself stalked on South Beach by a crazed paparazzo – and befriended by an unhinged hermit who was once the governor of Florida..
This book really appeals to me on so many levels, from the sea urchin in the diaper to the paparazzi in the bushes.
Best read of the year just hits home.
Carl Hiaasen seems to hate what i hate and love what i love.

Sounds like an interesting plot Elbert. I think there was a similar plot on TV - I think it was CSI Miami or it may have been a made for TV movie.

Interesting side note, the "islands" in that area are mainly man-made via drag lines, dredging etc.

I love Carl too, and that whole wacko Florida offbeat genre bunch...Dave Barry, Elmore Leonard...but I don't get Tim Dorsey, but Datallmon loves him. So, tanx, Elbert, will download it ASAP,

I love Hiaason and do have trouble with Dorsey all though my craziest friend likes him. Laurence Shames is in the same genre.
