Description

Joey Perrone is a woman with a mission. She's just been pushed overboard from a cruise liner by Chaz, her scumbag husband, and survived to tell the tale. But rather than reporting him to the police, she decides to stay dead and - with a little help from her friends and a few of Chaz's enemies - instead of getting mad, she's going to get even. Filled with a host of endearingly offbeat characters, and a narrative that is hilarious, romantic and thought-provoking by turns, Skinny Dip takes us on a journey through the warped politics of Southern Florida and through the madness created by the human heart.show more

Review quote

"Slick, swift and gloriously funny" * Sunday Telegraph * "The undisputed master of organized chaos... His satire is a fierce unmuzzled snarl, swiftly followed by a painfully ironic bite. Quite simply, brilliant" * The Sunday Times * "America's finest satirical novelist... the blazing conscience of the sunshine state" * Observer * "Florida's poet laureate - the chronicler of its corruption, craziness and exploited ecology... a unique satirical talent" * Financial Times * "The funniest crime novelist to put pen to paper" * Evening Standard *show more
