Hiaasen is the author of several books including TOURIST SEASON, STRIP TEASE and his latest BASKET CASE. He is an astute observer of Florida and all it's foibles: unrelenting development, political scandal, environmental destruction, drug smuggling and welfare for the rich. He discussed all of these issues as well as his interest in music and his fear that modern newspapers are failing to do anything more than make profits for their corporate owners.
