»The reason for all this screwball chaos in Bad Monkey is clear: Mr. Hiassen does not write serious novels about the human condition. He does not make it matter whose arm was severed, who committed the story’s several murders, which love affairs are real, or what will become of Yancy’s career. His books are built of balsa wood, but they are beautifully constructed all the same.«
Carl Hiaasen’s latest novel Bad Monkey features a cast of oddballs, says Janet Maslin. Her review you will find at The New York Times.
