I've written about Carl Hiaasen before. He turns out hilarious crime fiction, as well as maintaining an award-winning column in the Miami Herald. His latest book is Skinny Dip, a hugely enjoyable romp through the lives of some essentially clueless criminals in South Florida.
Hiaasen is the subject of an interview in the latest issue of the great Powell's bookstore online newsletter. Enjoy this conversation with Carl Hiaasen, and if you haven't yet had the pleasure of reading his books, dive into one soon. It would be the perfect antidote to the frenzied holiday season.
