Guest Picks: Dave Barry

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Dave Barry was on the Leonard Lopate Show to talk about his latest novel, Insane City, about a destination wedding that goes totally and hilariously awry. He also told us what he's been listening to recently, thanks to his daughter. Find out what else he's been reading, watching and eating!

What have you read or seen over the past year (book, play, film, etc…) that moved or surprised you?

         Lincoln, the movie. I thought it was fascinating, and Daniel Day-Lewis is a genius.


What are you listening to right now?

         Justin Bieber. But only because my 12-year-old daughter controls the car radio.


What’s the last great book you read?

         Lincoln, which I bought immediately after seeing the movie.


What’s one thing you’re a fan of that people might not expect?

         Broadway musicals from the ‘50s


What’s your favorite comfort food?

         Cheese, any kind. I can eat pounds of it.
