Overview

Readers who eagerly anticipate each new Carl Hiaasen novel will relish this selection of his Miami Herald columns, written with the same dark humor and satirical edge as Tourist Season, Strip Tease, Stormy Weather, and the rest of Hiaasen's brilliant and nationally acclaimed fiction. Known for evoking the disastrously flawed paradise of modern South Florida, Hiaasen proves in these columns that facts can indeed be stranger than the fiction they inspire.

In addition to South Florida color and world-class journalism, readers of Kick Ass will find one of Florida's staunchest defenders in action, and they'll take great pleasure in watching him work.

Carl Hiaason is the most funny,cynical writer to reach Britans beautifully littered shores. Good on him

Don't know if this book is good or not because 14 of the 16 reviews had nothing to do with reviewing it. Most of the comments were about wanting to have sex with other reviewers. How did you people get so twisted?

As a native Floridian, I have to say this is a dead on commentary written only the way Carl Hiassen can. Loved it and I live it, everyday.
