Writers are a notoriously secretive and jealous lot. Hiaasen shared a cynical view of the world and subversive sense of humor with Warren Zevon. For gifted Hiassen to be so publicly effusive in his praise of another writer, even one in another medium, is testament to Zevon’s talent. It is the same love of good writing combined with the “bad attitude” exhibited in his work that first drew me to Warren Zevon’s music.
