A Pulitzer Prize–winning Author

A brilliantly funny exploration of the Sunshine State from the man who knows it best . . .

We never know what will happen next in Florida. We know only that, any minute now, something will. Somehow, the state’s acquired an image as a subtropical festival of stupid. As a loyal Floridian, Dave Barry begs to differ — and he’s going to tell you why.
