My wife was giving me strange looks yesterday. Okay, she might have had a good reason. I was laughing out loud several times while reading The Deep Blue Alibi by Paul Levine. Levine has a talent for the creatively ridiculous that brings me to stitches, not unlike the works of Carl Hiassen, Catch-22 by Joseph Heller or The World According to Garp by John Irving.

If anyone has any other humorous favorites, let me know.

I finally picked up an old Elmore Leonard title. Another fav of the crazies(Read Australians) is Christopher Brookmyere(sp?)
I keep meaning to get back to Donald Westlake, tool. G.M. Ford wrote a series starting with Who the Hell is Wanda Fucka? that's very funny, as well.

Hi Merlot,
I've read Dave Barry and Tim Dorsey. I haven't tried Bob Morris, but will look him up. These are nice breaks between Ken Bruen books, so you have the dark noir blended with the caperish humor. I think Elmore Leonard adds a good blend of humor and noir in his books.

Hi Dave-
I'm half way throough Solomon vs. Lord and agree wholeheartedly. I don't even LIKE legal plots and love this book.
Have you read any Tim Dorsey, Bob Morris, or Dave Barry?
They all write in the 'Florida Whacko gere' ,too.
