FISH OUT OF WATER
Davidson's trilogy about a cranky half-mermaid named Fred concludes on a high jinks-filled high note. No one does in-your-face-funny dialogue better
than Davidson, whose sense of the absurd is top notch. This is vintage Davidson wackiness!
A new wrinkle is the strange disappearance of a number of Undersea Folk and the sudden arrival of Farrem, Fred's biological merman father. Farrem was banished years ago for fomenting a coup. Has he changed his conniving ways?
