Join the Field Notes Book Group as we discuss Carl Hiaasen's classic novel, Skinny Dip. Copies of the book will be available at the Circulation Desk.
Nobody writes about Florida in all its weirdness like Hiaasen, and Skinny Dip is Hiaasen at his best. A man who's helping a tycoon illegally dump waste into the Everglades suspects his wife knows what's going on and that she's going to turn him in. So he pushes her overboard a cruise ship in the Atlantic, assuming she's going to drown. She doesn't. Instead, she lands on a bale of marijuana thrown overboard by some drug dealers being chased by the Coast Guard. When she's rescued on shore by a former cop, she decides to stay dead and mess with her husband's head. And that's just the beginning of this twisted and extremely funny novel.
Coffee and donuts will be provided.
