    Dostoevsky and AA Milne and Strip Tease, I think. (All of those Hiassen novels run together, but they’re all pretty good.)

    I think that Strip Tease is right. Didn’t they make it into a movie starring Mrs. Ashton Kutcher an aeon or so ago?

      IMDB says yes, in 1996. (Which would explain why we missed it!)
