Dave Barry's New Novel, Insane City

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

Pulitzer Prize winner Dave Barry talks about his latest novel, Insane City, a dark comic story of a destination wedding in Florida. The groom and his friends become embroiled with rioters, Russian gangsters, angry strippers, a pimp as big as the Death Star, a very desperate Haitian refugee on the run with her two children from some very bad men, and an eleven-foot albino Burmese python named Blossom.

Please tell Mr. Barry that I am a huge fan of his. I love him to death and I am collecting all his works. When I need a good laugh, his books do the job. :-)
