Clownfish Blues - A Serge Storms Adventure (Paperback)Tim Dorsey (author)
- We can order this from the publisher
Serge Storms, the history-loving serial killer, returns for another adventure.
This time Serge and his substance-sustained sidekick, Coleman, take a mayhem-filled road trip through Florida in a vintage silver convertible Corvette. Moving from town to town and getting a new job each week - from worm-grunting to sign-spinning - they cause havoc wherever they go.
But their adventure is about to take a detour. Someone is trying to tilt the odds in the state lottery amidst a conga line of huge jackpots. Crooked bodega owners, drug cartels laundering money through the lottery, and venture capitalists are all trying to game the system--and lining up to get their cut. They're also gambling with their lives, because when Serge and Coleman get hip to this timely (and very lucrative) trip, there's no telling whose number is up next.
In other words, welcome to Tim Dorsey's slice of America - where nobody gets out unscathed and untanned!What people are saying about Serge Storms:
"Over-the-top, off-the-wall, too-much-is-never-enough, Florida insanity was never described so authentically and with such enthusiasm."
"Humor really doesn't get better than this. Dorsey has a style all to his own that is simply not replicated anywhere."
"Serge and Coleman are a match made in heaven and I am still laughing ... truly a great read and I can't wait to delve into more of Dorsey's work."
"This is Pulp Fiction on steroids with an acid tab chaser. There is insanity on every page and every page is a good time. Twists and turns, and some of the most creative homicidal mayhem I have ever read."
"... for pure pleasure and entertainment you just can't beat the maniacal style of the Serge Storm series."Editorial reviews:
"Hilarious. ... Serge Storms is, hands down, one of the most original and just-plain-captivating characters in modern crime fiction." Booklist
"Entertaining ... funny ... irreverent and loving at the same time ... [Dorsey] leaves the reader gasping for breath." Washington Post Book World
"The characters in Tim Dorsey's raucous novel would be shot on sight in any other state." The New York Times Book Review
"Excellent ... I almost exploded with laughter as I read Dorsey's novel. It's manic, hysterical, and puts Dorsey well up there with the cream of comic writers who seem to have made Florida the centre for satirizing America in the 21st century." Independent
"Twisted hilarity ... a compelling page-turner ... Tim Dorsey is one sick bunny." Belfast News Letter

"A newer, nuttier individual is introduced on practically every page ... It's a sweet relief to discover that Dorsey can keep up with himself. Heaven knows nobody else can ..."
* Orlando Sentinel *
"High satire with a lowbrow sensibility that inevitably invokes comparisons to Carl Hiaasen .... Dorsey is compulsively irreverent and shockingly funny .... He puts a funhouse mirror in front of the political process and those who feed off it .... For readers with a high threshold for prurience and violence, Dorsey's books are definitely funny ha-ha."* Boston Globe *
"Entertaining ... funny ... irreverent and loving at the same time ... [Dorsey] leaves the reader gasping for breath."* Washington Post Book World *
