Carl Hiaasen On Trump

Sep 12, 2016

  Carl Hiaasen is one of America's finest satirical novelists. His newspaper column is another side of the same talent, examining with a corrosive writer's eye the outrageous carnival of Florida and our world.

His weekly Miami Herald columns are written with the same dark humor and satirical edge as his novels Tourist Season, Strip Tease, Stormy Weather and the rest of Hiaasen's acclaimed fiction. Each week he proves that facts can indeed be stranger than the fiction they inspire.

Hiaasen has a new bestselling novel out, entitled Razor Girl. He will be our guest on this week’s Book Show.

Since its inception in 1985, Hiaasen's "baseball-bat-to-the-forehead" column has become enormously popular for its passionate conviction and willingness to confront powerful interests in pursuit of the public good.

A new Siena College poll released this morning — the same day of former state Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver's sentencing — finds corruption the most pressing issue among New York residents.
