Reviews

"Carl Hiaasen remains the undefeated, unscored-upon conscience of Florida, maybe the conscience of the whole country. I laughed and laughed and laughed while I read Squeeze Me - until I remembered, hey, I live in Palm Beach! Oh yeah, spoiler alert - the python did it." --James Patterson

By the evidence of the scabrous and unrelentingly hilarious Squeeze Me, the Trump era is truly Carl Hiaasen's moment . . . Just dive in and have a wonderful time. --Richard Lipez, The Washington Post

Novelists, like the rest of us, can't look away from the Trump administration. Unfortunately, they haven't found much interesting to say about it. Carl Hiaasen's thriller Squeeze Me is, blessedly, an exception . . . Hiaasen is clear-eyed: He meets the president on his subterranean level . . . Squeeze Me is funny, but as with Hiaasen's best work, it's grounded in genuine outrage over the corruption that increasingly defines American political and cultural life. And it turns out there's no better place to invoke that outrage than the wealthy swamps of Florida. --Alex Shephard, The New Republic

Pink pearls, pythons and a philandering president add up to a rather unusual Palm Beach social season in Carl Hiaasen's riotously funny new novel, Squeeze Me . . . [Hiaasen] knows and loves Florida and hates what has been done to it as much as anyone I know of, and those passions shape his razor-sharp satirical fiction. --Colette Bancroft, The Tampa Bay Times


Squeeze Me is vintage Hiaasen -- wry humor, social commentary and satire akin to Jonathan Swift, and all fun. --Oline H. Cogdill, The South Florida Sun-Sentinel
