This is a collection of greatest hits by the Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist of the MIAMI HERALD. Most of the material is very funny, with a few misses and a lot of smiles thrown in to keep us listening. Dick Hill reads the columns with the same wry, ironic, smart-alecky tone in which they're written. Hill reads in a pleasant, easy-to-follow voice and has a great sense of comic timing. He captures the mood of each piece and really seems to understand Barry's intentions. Take these columns a few at a time, though, because the material can grate on you. Too much satire is difficult to digest in one or two sittings. R.I.G. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/ JAN 02]
