A very funny, insightful novel about various ethnic groups in Miami. The main character a 2nd generation Cuban police officer is very sympathetic as is the African American Chief of Police. The reader also meets Russian mob members, Haitians, and a very obnoxious social-climbing psychiatrist. It's a riot. Wolfe captures American societies like nobody else. Hooray.

Listened to audio book and found myself literally laughing out loud a dozen times. Very, very funny satire of just about everyone in Miami, including Yalies and snowbird Yentas.

This could have been written by anyone who writes bodice rippers or Hollywood exposes. Tom Wolfe does or did know how to write. Cynical cliche upon cynical cliche. Bah.

I loved this book. It reminds me all of the other great Tom Wolfe books, with great characters, and wonderful dialogue. If you have liked any of his other books, do read this one.

This book was better than reviews lead me to believe. It is novelized social commentary on Miami. I found it extremely interesting read that way as opposed to really looking for a strong story line.
