If you think the wildest, wackiest stories that Carl Hiaasen can tell have all made it into his hilarious, bestselling novels, think again. Dance of the Reptiles collects the best of Hiaasen’s Miami Herald columns, which lay bare the stories—large and small—that demonstrate anew that truth is far stranger than fiction.
 
Hiaasen offers his commentary—indignant, disbelieving, sometimes righteously angry, and frequently hilarious—on burning issues like animal welfare, polluted rivers, and the broken criminal justice system, as well as the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, Bernie Madoff’s trial, and the shenanigans of the recent presidential elections. Whether or not you have read Carl Hiaasen before, you are in for a wild ride.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Lively and well-reported…Illuminated by all the wit and keen descriptive powers of his fiction.”

    Salon

  • “Shows you that Hiaasen’s seemingly implausible fictional premises aren’t really far-fetched at all. He just knows Florida.”

    Playboy

  • “Will be immediately popular with his fans.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Entertaining…Hilarious and unnerving…for Hiaasen’s ability to awaken outrage and for his eye for oddity.”

    Booklist

  • “Hiaasen employs a seasoned bullshit detector that is among the most acute in American journalism…If Florida is the poster child for a nation’s fiscal and political disintegration, Hiaasen is the state’s galloping knight (in)errant, slaying the dragons of ineptitude, arrogance and idiocy.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Hiaasen employs a seasoned bullshit detector that is among the most acute in American journalism…If Florida is the poster child for a nation’s fiscal and political disintegration, Hiaasen is the state’s galloping knight (in)errant, slaying the dragons of ineptitude, arrogance and idiocy.”
