Notes

Description
Recounts several months in the lives of about 15 losers who are lower on the criminal food chain than even an Elmore Leonard character. Take the insurance executive who has turned to money laundering to save his failing business after Hurricane Andrew; or the three thug wannabes who end up as vigilantes defending a community of senior citizens against their rapacious landlord; or take Serge and Coleman, who can only be described as Cheech and Chong with guns. What ties these characters together is the seventh game of the 1997 World Series in which the Florida Marlins defeated the Cleveland Indians in extra innings. From murder by Levi's 501s to the annual Running of the Hemingways in Key West, "Florida Roadkill" is a manic, violent, lyrical, and hysterically funny post-postmodern crime novel.
