1 Bad Monkey

Author : Carl Hiaasen
Genre :  Fiction & Literature  Books  Mysteries & Thrillers 
Price :  $10.99
Release Date :  2013-06-11
Description :  Andrew Yancy—late of the Miami Police and soon-to-be-late of the Monroe County sheriff’s office—has a human arm in his freezer. There’s a logical (Hiaasenian) explanation for that, but not for how and why it parted from its shadowy owner. Yancy thinks the boating-accident/shark-luncheon explanation is full of holes, and if he can prove murder, the sheriff might rescue him from his grisly Health Inspector gig (it’s not called the roach patrol for nothing). But first—this being Hiaasen country—Yancy must negotiate an obstacle course of wildly unpredictable events with a crew of even more wildly unpredictable characters, including his just-ex lover, a hot-blooded fugitive from Kansas; the twitchy widow of the frozen arm; two avariciously optimistic real-estate speculators; the Bahamian voodoo witch known as the Dragon Queen, whose suitors are blinded unto death by her peculiar charms; Yancy’s new true love, a kinky coroner; and the eponymous bad monkey, who with hilarious aplomb earns his place among Carl Hiaasen’s greatest characters. <br /><br /> Here is Hiaasen doing what he does better than anyone else: spinning a tale at once fiercely pointed and wickedly funny in which the greedy, the corrupt, and the degraders of what’s left of pristine Florida—now, of the Bahamas as well—get their comeuppance in mordantly ingenious, diabolically entertaining fashion.<br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>

Yancy believes that if he can singlehandedly solve a high-profile murder, he'll get his detective badge back.

Author : Carl Hiaasen & Roz Chast
Genre :  Humor  Books  Nonfiction  Philosophy 
Price :  $8.99
Release Date :  2018-04-10
Description :  <b>This is <i>Oh, the Places You'll </i><b>Never</b><i> Go</i>--the ultimate hilarious, cynical, but absolutely realistic view of a college graduate's future. And what he or she can or can't do about it.</b><br /><br />"This commencement address will never be given, because graduation speakers are supposed to offer encouragement and inspiration. That's not what you need. You need a warning."<br />&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0; So begins Carl Hiaasen's attempt to prepare young men and women for their future. And who better to warn them about their precarious paths forward than Carl Hiaasen? The answer, after reading <i>Assume the Worst,</i> is: Nobody.<br />&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0; And who better to illustrate--and with those illustrations, expand upon and cement Hiaasen's cynical point of view--than Roz Chast, best-selling author/illustrator and National Book Award winner? The answer again is easy: Nobody.<br />&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0; Following the format of Anna Quindlen's commencement address (<i>Being Perfect</i>) and George Saunders's commencement address (<i>Congratulations, by the way</i>), the collaboration of Hiaasen and Chast might look typical from the outside, but inside it is anything but. <br />&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0; This book is bound to be a classic, sold year after year come graduation time. Although it's also a good gift for anyone starting a job, getting married, or recently released from prison. Because it is not just funny. It is, in its own Hiaasen way, extremely wise and even hopeful. Well, it might not be full of hope, but there are certainly enough slivers of the stuff in there to more than keep us all going.

25 The Downhill Lie

Author : Carl Hiaasen
Genre :  Golf  Books  Sports & Outdoors  Humor  Biographies & Memoirs 
Price :  $10.99
Release Date :  2008-05-06
Description :  Originally drawn to the game by his father, Carl Hiaasen wisely quit golfing in 1973. But some ambitions refuse to die, and as the years–and memories of shanked 7-irons faded, it dawned on Carl that there might be one thing in life he could do better in middle age than he could as a youth. So gradually he ventured back to the dreaded driving range, this time as the father of a five-year-old son–and also as a grandfather. <br /> &#xa0;<br /> “What possesses a man to return in midlife to a game at which he’d never excelled in his prime, and which in fact had dealt him mostly failure, angst and exasperation? Here’s why I did it: I’m one sick bastard.” And thus we have Carl’s foray into a world of baffling titanium technology, high-priced golf gurus, bizarre infomercial gimmicks and the mind-bending phenomenon of Tiger Woods; a maddening universe of hooks and slices where Carl ultimately–and foolishly–agrees to compete in a country-club tournament against players who can actually hit the ball. “That’s the secret of the sport’s infernal seduction,” he writes. “It surrenders just enough good shots to let you talk yourself out of quitting.”<br /><br /> Hiaasen’s chronicle of his shaky return to this bedeviling pastime and the ensuing demolition of his self-esteem–culminating with the savage 45-hole tournament–will have you rolling with laughter. Yet the bittersweet memories of playing with his own father and the glow he feels when watching his own young son belt the ball down the fairway will also touch your heart. Forget Tiger, Phil and Ernie. If you want to understand the true lure of golf, turn to Carl Hiaasen, who offers an extraordinary audiobook for the ordinary hacker. <br /><br />BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Carl Hiaasen's&#xa0;<i>Bad Monkey</i>.

Instead, he finds the papers the professor has compiled for the CIA, which include a blueprint for throwing a large city into chaos. But how is the CIA to be persuaded to pay a suitable ransom, unless of course someone actually uses the plan to throw a large city into chaos—Los Angeles, for instance? Assigned to cope with the crisis and restore the peace, veteran agent Ben Porterfield steps onto the scene to remind us that the CIA’s middle name is, after all, Intelligence. Enlivening the mix are Gordon’s beautiful girlfriend, Margaret, his temperamental cat, Dr. Henry Metzger, and Metzger’s friend, an enormous half-wild dog with huge teeth.

Description :  "Disney is so good at being good that it manifests an evil; so uniformly efficient and courteous, so dependably clean and conscientious, so unfailingly entertaining that it's unreal, and therefore is an agent of pure wickedness. . . . Disney isn't in the business of exploiting Nature so much as striving to improve upon it, constantly fine-tuning God's work."<br />--from TEAM RODENT<br /><br />TEAM RODENT<br />How Disney Devours America<br /><br />"Revulsion is good. Revulsion is healthy. Each of us has limits, unarticulated boundaries of taste and tolerance, and sometimes we forget where they are. Peep Land is here to remind us; a fixed compass point by which we can govern our private behavior. Because being grossed out is essential to the human experience; without a perceived depravity, we'd have nothing against which to gauge the advance or decline of culture; our art, our music, our cinema, our books. Without sleaze, the yardstick shrinks at both ends. Team Rodent doesn't believe in sleaze, however, nor in old-fashioned revulsion. Square in the middle is where it wants us all to be, dependable consumers with predictable attitudes. The message, never stated but avuncularly implied, is that America's values ought to reflect those of the Walt Disney Company, and not the other way around."<br /><br />BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Carl Hiaasen's <i>Bad Monkey.</i>

Description :  « Fidèle au style satirique et outrancier qui a fait son succès : une farce hilarante ! » Le Monde des Livres<br /><br />Le livre : Après un naufrage médiatique dû à un breuvage détonant, Cherry Pye, une pop star de vingt-deux printemps, s’apprête à tenter son grand retour. Pas de répit donc pour Ann DeLusia, la doublure qui l’incarne à son insu chaque fois qu’elle n’est pas « en état » de paraître en public. D’autant plus que la jeune femme va être kidnappée par un paparazzo à la place de Cherry. L’entourage de la chanteuse – une mère envahissante et super groupie, un producteur chaud lapin, des attachées de presse reines de l’intox et fans du botox, un garde du corps estropié – et Skink, ex-gouverneur de Floride déjanté, vont alors se mobiliser dans le plus grand secret pour secourir Ann. Mais gare au cocktail au vitriol des stars passées au presse-people !<br />L’auteur : Carl Hiaasen réside en Floride avec sa famille et tient une rubrique depuis 1985 dans le Miami Herald. Il collabore également aux magazines Time, Life et Esquire. Ses romans, notamment Queue de poisson, Croco-deal et Mauvais coucheur, ainsi que ses romans pour enfants, tels Chouette et Panthère, connaissent des succès mondiaux, sont traduits dans trente-quatre langues et lui ont valu plusieurs prix. Lors de la parution de Presse-People, le London Observer l’a qualifié de « meilleur auteur satirique de l’Amérique » tandis qu’il est décrit comme un « Woody Allen mâtiné de Tarantino qui parlerait comme Bret Easton Ellis » par Madame Figaro.

Release Date :  2012-06-21
Description :  Jack Tagger è un giornalista che 
non sa tenere la bocca chiusa. Per questo da cronista d’assalto è finito a scrivere coccodrilli sulle pagine dello Union-Register, quotidiano
 del Sud della Florida che negli
 anni, come Jack, sembra aver perso mordente.<br />Ma ora che Jimmy Stoma, incendiario leader degli Slut Puppies a metà strada tra un Kurt Cobain e un Jeff Buckley, è annegato in un incidente subacqueo a largo delle Bahamas in circostanze poco chiare, Jack ha l’occasione di scrivere molto più che un necrologio.<br />Cleo, la vedova di Jimmy, è una Courtney Love priva di talento, divenuta famosa per aver mostrato al mondo, nel suo unico video in stile Basic Instinct, la sua “personalità”, e adesso sta dando versioni talmente incoerenti sull’incidente di Jimmy
 che Jack vuole andarci
a fondo. Grazie a una caparbietà 
da vecchio cronista, a Carla (diciassettenne ad alta tensione con
il piercing ai capezzoli), alla sorella di Jimmy (poliziotta sexy via webcam) e alla caporedattrice Emma (irreprensibile antagonista che sotto la rigida scorza nasconde un animo colorato quanto gli smalti che indossa), Jack rincorrerà a tempo 
di rock il suo riscatto: un pezzo da prima pagina! Perché in ballo non 
c’è più solo il cadavere di Jimmy... Un thriller dal pungente black humour e dalla travolgente colonna sonora, in cui la musica sfida la morte, e dove 
le donne brillano di colori accesi
 e fosforescenti come la Florida.<br />&#xa0;

Aujourd’hui, il n’aspire plus qu’à couler des jours paisibles en compagnie de son barracuda. Quelqu’un, en revanche, semble avoir d’autres plans pour lui, si l’on en croit l’intrusion d’un homme armé dans sa cahute. Sans compter la fâcheuse tendance qu’a Chimio, ce colosse au visage grêlé, à vouloir contrarier sa sérénité. Reste à savoir quel cerveau commandite ces incessantes attaques manquées. La liste des ennemis de Stranahan est longue, à commencer par un certain chirurgien plastique dont les œuvres ne semblent pas franchement cousues main…<br /><br />L’auteur :<br />Carl Hiaasen est né en Floride, où il vit toujours avec sa famille.
