Dave Barry

Dave Barry's first solo adult novel in more than a decade is  Insane City  (Putnam; $26.95).    Seth thinks all he needs to worry about is showing up to his  destination wedding in Florida.    But  that's before he encounters Russian gangsters, angry strippers, and an eleven-foot albino Burmese python named Blossom.    For twenty-five years, humorist Dave Barry's work appeared in more than 500 newspapers.    The winner of a Pulitzer Prize, Barry is the author of thirty books.

In 1992, some of the world's bestselling authors formed the band the Rock Bottom Remainders.  For two decades the band played on, loud and proud, to sold out crowds across the country.  Hard Listening:  The Greatest Rock Band Ever (of Authors) Tells All (Coliloquy; $16.99) combines essay, fiction, photographs, audio and video clips--even interactive quizzes--in a look back at twenty years of friendship, love, writing and the redemptive power of rock 'n' roll. Sam Barry is the author of the humor-inspiration book How to Play the Harmonica: and Other Life Lessons and co-author with his wife, the late Kathi Kamen Goldmark, of Write That Book Already: the Tough Love You Need to Get Published Now.
