YOU CAN DATE BOYS WHEN YOU'RE FORTY Dave Barry on Parenting and Other Topics He Knows Very Little About

by | Read by Dave Barry

Humor • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Award-winning humor author Dave Barry dishes up an assortment of ripe essays exposing the ridiculous sides of life through his classic style of dry and sardonic humor. This entertaining listen provides Barry’s observations on parenting, funeral planning, bat mitzvahs, relationships, and contemporary culture. Listeners are also treated to an amusing travelogue depicting a family vacation in Israel. Barry’s nasal tone and unpolished cadence may diminish the performance for listeners accustomed to more skilled narrators. However, with Barry as the narrator of his own work, the essays take on the quality of a stand-up comedy monologue with impeccable comedic pauses. Barry’s conversational diction and near perfect delivery of cheeky humor make up for his periodic bungling of pronunciations. Overall, Barry delivers another collection of hilariously entertaining essays. K.C.R. 2015 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2014]
