I've been reading Johnny Got His Gun. I've been meaning to read it for years. So sad, but so well-written. I can't wait till my girls are in bed tonight so I can read more.
NY Times Book Review:AIB Super Amputee Cat and his posts about Cairo, Illinois, I found a nearly pristine copy of Far From Home: Life And Loss In Two American Towns by Tom Powers.
Just finished the new Tim Dorsey, Nuclear Jellyfish. Serge the serial killer is back. Laugh out loud funny, totally loony, like his others.
I loooove Tim Dorsey. Nothing brings me back to Florida and all its craziness like his books. I am one behind you, just finished Atomic Lobster.
A co-worker started me on Dorsey's books 5-6 years ago; I read a lot of FL authors, couldn't believe I missed him. Now RJ is reading his books, too. If you order anything from his website, you get an autographed draft page from a book. And, he answers his own email.
Jellyfish is convoluted as usual, but hysterically funny. But I think newbies would have to start with the first book to understand Serge.
on vacation i read Florida Roadkill by Tim Dorsey and The Birth House by Ami Mckay. both were pretty decent. one dealt with criminals, drugs, good guys, murder
