Saturday, February 9, 2013 - 4:00pm

In Insane City ($26.95), Dave Barry returns to the comic suspense genre of which he is a past master. Here is a madcap, hilariously complicated, heartfelt tale of a groom, Seth Weinstein, and his numbskull posse of pals, set on the eve of his spectacular wedding. Soon  Seth will become involved with a family of Haitian refugees, an orangutan named Trevor, medical marijuana, a fake pirate ship, a gigantic snake, Russian gangsters, scheming billionaires, angry strippers, and gorgeous Cuban women – all set in and around Barry’s insanely dangerous, wacky, but exhilarating hometown of Miami.

Dave Barry has been a professional humorist ever since he discovered that professional humor was a lot easier than working. Barry won the Pulitzer Prize for commentary, although he misplaced it for several years, which is why his wife now keeps it in a secure location that he does not know about. He has also written more than 30 books, including the novels Big Trouble, Lunatics, and Tricky Business.
