Strip Tease by Carl Hiaasen

Strip Tease by Carl Hiaasen is perhaps infamous for being the original book that the horrible movie of the same name was based upon. A stripper tries to get custody of her daughter back from her wheelchair stealing former husband. The book has wacky characters. The pervert congressman perhaps being the most over-the-top. The book is funny and also contains some interesting social commentary about sugarcane. Although the plann that leads to the climactic scene doesn't really make much sense. At least the main character realizes this at the time.


Is available through Abebooks.
