Trying to hunt down a book I overheard people talking about on the subway. I believe the opening scene involved poo in some way? And the author's name sounded Hispanic, though I didn't quite catch it. Suggestions?

He's not Hispanic, but if you like poo, you should read John Harding's One Big Damn Puzzler (http://www.amazon.com/One-Big-Damn-Puzzler-P-S/dp/0061132187/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1245646976&sr=8-1).

Another suggestions:

The giggler treatment.

Excellent children's book by Roddy Doyle.

There's a guy who published a book set in a town near where I live, and the opening scene had the MC describing how much he loved the smell of his own poo...

I think I'll be avoiding all this scatological literature.
