Product Details

Praise

“[A] quirky, wild, heartfelt beach read . . . Take a respite from reality and settle in. . . . Cooper’s Florida Man is the escape we’ve all been needing.”—Mississippi Clarion-Ledger
 
“Unexpectedly bittersweet and meditative . . . Cooper’s prose feels both fresh and pleasantly familiar.”The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

“There are few words that will do Florida Man justice, but to try: Ribald. Audacious. Terrifying. Florida Man is Cooper’s singular, hallucinatory expression of deep American weirdness, a thing enjoyed and then survived, like a tangerine sunset overtaken by a purple hurricane. Hang in, people.”—Smith Henderson, author of Fourth of July Creek

“Cooper made a memorable debut with The Marauders. This second act delivers an even messier, nastier, more brutal, and engaging yarn that spans decades on a remote outpost deep in the wilds of Florida. . . . In this fascinating decades-long trek, we follow perpetually stoned Reed Crowe and his nearly endless run of bad luck. . . . Add a few biblical hurricanes, the occasional sea monster, and Jimmy Buffet and stir. This cocktail’s recipe would be one part Travis McGee, one part Carl Hiaasen, and a salt shaker full of magical realism.”Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Darkly entertaining . . . Throughout, Cooper’s macabre and brutal universe crackles with energy and wit, and will hold readers’ attention until the very end. Cooper’s riotous, riveting tale rivals the best of Don Winslow.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)
