Tim Dorsey


Tim Dorsey grew up in Riviera Beach on Florida’s southeast coast, and for several years worked as a journalist on the night desk of the Tampa Tribune, where his duties included sorting through endless reports of brutal and strange crimes. Humour is a natural defence reaction to editing this parade of dysfunction, violence and stupidity, and it led to a surreal, Florida-noir way of looking at things that found its outlet in his own highly original style of fiction.
