In this study group, we will enjoy Carl Hiaasen’s comic novel Razor Girl (Vintage Crime/Black Lizard Reprint Edition, 2017), a recent addition to Hiaasen’s wild and crazy novels about life in Florida. The novel begins when Merry deliberately causes an auto accident — while shaving an intimate region of her body. The accident victim, is the Hollywood agent of a Duck Dynasty-like reality TV star. As the novel progresses, we meet a wide variety of skewed characters and observe hilarious phenomena in Florida. Praised by leading critics, this novel will inspire interesting discussion of Hiaasen’s literary techniques and cultural criticisms. No class on 01/20/20.
