Carl Hiaasen in Adelaide

I missed the start of this evening’s showing of Ten Canoes, so I stopped in at a local bookstore. On the shelf: Several novels by Miami Herald columnist Carl Hiaasen. This is no surprise: The South Floridian authors whose books I see most often in foreign bookstores are Hiaasen, humorist Dave Barry and cookbook author Steven Raichlen. Of those, Hiaasen’s are the books I see most.

Imagine what foreigners think of South Florida after reading his novels. Of course, they probably think South Florida’s mayhem is just Hiaasen-esque fiction.
