Get a bunch of big-name writers to write a book, chapter by chapter, creating the plot on the fly. A publishing gimmick, certainly, but one that occasionally delivers an entertaining-enough product. This time an impressive gang of writers (including James Crumley, Tim O'Brien, and Dave Barry) have produced a slapstick thriller with a golf theme. The world's richest man, software wizard Phillip Bates, has built himself a golf course in Scotland and invited everybody who is anybody (from Madonna to the Pope) to his inaugural tournament. Also on hand is a terrorist aiming to blow up all the heads of state. A bumbling FBI agent and three down-on-their-luck golfers are left to save the world. It's a totally over-the-top farce--equal parts Caddyshack, The Pink Panther, and Airplanebut golfers with a silly streak will get a kick out of it. Remarkably, Crumley--the most unlikely of the nine authors to turn up anywhere near a golf course--delivers the funniest chapter. ((Reviewed March 15, 2000)) Copyright 2000 Booklist Reviews
