Carl Hiaasen is a Florida native amd Miami Herald columnist. He has written more than 11 novels for adults and children, some of which have been adapted for film, including Strip Tease (1996), starring Demi Moore and Hoot (2006), directed by Wil Shriner and produced by Jimmy Buffett and Frank Marshall.
Together, Hiaasen's novels have been published in 34 languages, which is 33 more than he is able to read or write. Still, he has reason to believe that all the foreign translations are brilliantly faithful to the original work. The London Observer has called him "America's finest satirical novelist"; Janet Maslin of the New York Times has compared him to Preston Sturges, Woody Allen and S.J. Perelman.
On June 14, Hiaasen spoke in Portsmouth at The Music Hall as part of the Writers on a New England Stage series where he presented his latest book Bad Monkey.
