Hiaasen, Carl

Summary: Hiaasen presents "The Graduation Speech You'll Never Hear," telling graduates (or new job-holders, or brides-and-grooms, or newly-released ex-convicts) the truth: you need to disregard the lame platitudes, keep disillusionment at bay, and assume that bad things will happen in life. Yes, life is a shit storm. No, you're not all doomed. And you might even survive with a sense of humor intact.

Summary: Andrew Yancy, late of the Miami Police, soon-to-be-late of the Key West Police, has a human arm in his freezer. There's a logical (Hiaasenian) explanation for that, but not for how and why it parted from its owner.
