Praising Tim Dorsey’s tongue-in-cheek humor, the Miami Herald wrote, “Nobody, but nobody, writes like this guy.” Here, Florida politics take the main stage in a rollicking satire that proves Dorsey is at the top of his game.

Florida governor-by-default Marlon Conrad, the Republicans’ handsome, unthreatening “golden boy”—and a loyal tool of powerful special interests groups—seems a virtual shoo-in for re-election. That is, until he undergoes a radical personality shift during a bloody military action in the Balkans. Now it’s just three weeks before the election, and Marlon is suddenly talking about “issues” and “reform” as he crosses the length and breadth of his home state with an amnesiac speechwriter and a chief of staff who turns catatonic in the presence of minorities. The governor’s new-found conscience might well cost him the election, though, and it appears that pretty much everybody from Tallahassee to Miami Beach is trying to kill him.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Excellent…It’s manic, hysterical, and puts Dorsey well up there with the cream of comic writers who seem to have made Florida the center for satirizing America in the twenty-first century.”

    Independent (London)

  • “A rip-roaring entertainment…Dorsey spares almost no one…and that’s what makes Orange Crush so wickedly refreshing. It’s just the thing to keep political junkies laughing until the next real election comes along.”

    St. Petersburg Times

  • “Another outrageous, bawdy, and raucous tale…Orange Crush offers satirical situations, laugh-out-loud dialogue, and plenty of action.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “Would-be assassins, spin doctors, scandalmongers, bloodthirsty journalists, lobbyists, and at least one serial killer…are along for the wild ride. Thoroughly cynical and over-the-top…it will produce laughs under many a beach umbrella.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “If 200-proof satire is your drink of choice, Dorsey is the guy you want behind the bar.”


Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Renae | 2/18/2014

    " Good light read for the Thanksgiving weekend. Reminds me of Carl Hiaasen. Almost too much. "

    " Ok, so this book is completely different from the other Serge novels and still completely fantastic. I've avoided reading it for a while because the main focus isn't on the love of my life, Serge Storms, but now I'm glad I did. Dorsey takes your run-of-the-mill born to be a politician, Marlon Conrad, and turns in him to someone I would actually vote for. Marlon's development from spoiled rich boy to idealistic man is both hilarious and inspiring. Of course, Serge is still there with his usual shenanigans, but as usual, Dorsey ties it all into the plot nicely. This is a fantastic "must read" for any Serge lover. "

    " Chuckled a few times... then promptly forgot the entire book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Bob Corrigan | 1/31/2014

    " Enjoyed it. The book strikes me as just a tiny bit too ... much. Too over the top. I think this is one of those reads that you just have to be in the 'mood' for -- goofy, goofy, really strange characters etc. "
