If you think the wildest, wackiest stories that Carl Hiaasen can tell have all made it into his hilarious, best-selling 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.
"Great book. Required reading!"
Even though writer Carl Hiaasen is a best-selling novelist, he has never given up his day job as a columnist for the Miami Herald. His new book, Dance of the Reptiles, is a compilation of some of his best pieces, on topics ranging from the serious to the ridiculous. Then, Bob speaks with Rosanne Cash about her first new album in four years, The River & The Thread. The record was inspired by her trips to Dyess, Arkansas about two years ago to participate in the restoration of her father’s boyhood home.
