Where Pudding  is reminded by Katje's poop of the battle of Passchendaele,  yes.   

It's so nonlinear in structure,  there's a desire to skip around.   Will see how it goes.

Three Felony Opera?  (Larry said the Trump years will make a hell of an opera someday)

BTW,  Carl Hiaasen's new book,  "Squeeze Me, " is a hoot,  set in his usual Florida cesspits and swamps,  with sharp political satire (and some Trumpian jabs)  -- he is America's Evelyn Waugh.

   Wasn't familiar with his YA books.  Owl ask the daughter if she read it -  she was in that demographic when "Hoot" was published. 

I came to the Hiaasen world via "Native Tongue, " which remains a favorite.
