Author Essay

When I was a teenager, we used to have a Sunday morning ritual in my family. I’d drag myself out of bed and head downstairs to have my breakfast (which, according to the clock, usually should have been more like lunch). My father would greet me with the excited words "You have to hear Dave Barry today!" What proceeded was nothing less than a milk-spewing laugh-fest as I tried to eat my soggy cereal while my father read Barry’s column aloud to me.

I love "Dave Barry’s Greatest Hits" because it lets me relive all that spewed milk and those snarfed Rice Krispies.

If you discovered Barry through his column, this book is a great way to revisit those favorites that you haven’t read since they first appeared in the paper. And if you’ve never read any of Dave Barry’s work, then consider yourself warned: Do not attempt to read this book and eat at the same time (unless, of course, the idea of snorting your milk in front of others appeals to you).
