Looking for a book
This is a test of the power of the internet:
About 10 years ago, I read a book with a couple of really funny lines, and I’d really like to know what the book was. As I recall, it was sort of Carl Hiassenish. One line was something like “he wore an old blue blazer kind of smile, practiced and worn in.” Another line went something like “the wind cut through his clothes like a saw through ribs.” I’ve Googled approximately three million variations of these phrases, but no luck so far. Any idea what book this could have been?
