Dorsey (Florida Roadkill) does it again with his latest screwball novel. Republican Lt. Gov. Marlon Conrad is a shoo-in for the next Florida gubernatorial race, thanks to a fortunate twist of fate, a wealthy father, and well-connected friends. He thus considers it an advantage when his army reserve unit is called up for a peacekeeping detail in Serbia, where a traumatic experience changes his entire outlook on life. When the campaign begins to heat up, he ditches security and hits the road in a secondhand Winnebago, garishly painted with the Orange Crush logo. Dorsey's oddball crew of characters includes the serial killer Serge A. Storms, of Florida Roadkill fame, and Conrad's political opponent, Gomer "Boo-Book" Tatum. The result is manmade pandemonium, with Conrad outwitting the security guards, playing to the masses, dodging assassination attempts, and leaving a trail of dead bodies in his wake. Dorsey takes this opportunity to laugh heartily at his home state's electoral policies and recent political foul-ups. For most libraries. Thomas L. Kilpatrick, Southern Illinois Univ. Lib., Carbondale Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

Florida politics get roundly skewered in Tim Dorsey's (Hammerhead Ranch Hotel) Orange Crush, a relentless farce about the battle for the Sunshine State's governorship between Republican incumbent Marlon Conrad and Democratic underdog Gomer Tatum. Conrad, completely beholden to special-interest groups, seems like a shoo-in, but an epiphany for Conrad when his reserve unit is posted to the Balkans changes everything. Would-be assassins, spin doctors, scandalmongers, bloodthirsty journalists, lobbyists and at least one serial killer (Dorsey regular Serge E. Storms) are along for the wild ride. Thoroughly cynical and over-the-top from the prologue to the "note on the type," it will produce laughs under many a beach umbrella. ( July 10) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
