Loving Tim Dorsey

I've been reading my way though the Tim Dorsey mystery/thriller/funny books... of the Carl Hiaasen/Dave Barry/Elmore Leonard variety. These are among the zaniest and most fun of the genre in my humble opinion. Lots of history about Florida too. Much fun.

Just finished Torpedo Juice... which includes this awesome exchange:

The deputies backed up US 1 in their white-and-green sheriff's cruiser. Gus was driving. He kept shifting his weight. The seat had one of those wooden-bead seat covers.

"Is that thing helping your back?" asked Walter.

"Actually hurts more."

"Why do you still use it?"

"I paid for it."

Classic. And I totally do this all the time, especially with food. ... sigh ...

If you want to pick it up, go in order. I also really enjoyed Triggerfish Twist.
