Carl Hiaasen

carl-hiaasen“One of the funniest and most twisted novels ever written was CAR, by the late Harry Crews. It’s very short, and one of his early works, but I was blown away when I read it. The plot features a young guy who actually tries to eat a Ford from bumper to bumper as part of an elaborate promotion for a North Florida auto dealership. The car (it’s either a Maverick or a Pinto, I can’t remember) is cut into cubes and lubricated so it can be swallowed, digested and then re-delivered on stage with a rowdy audience in attendance. It’s a beautiful all-American story.”
