A “genuine genius” (The New York Times Book Review), Dave Barry won the Pulitzer Prize for commentary in 1988. He wrote for the Miami Herald for 30 years, where his column was syndicated in more than 500 newspapers. His dozens of bestselling works of fiction, nonfiction, and essay collections include I’ll Mature When I’m Dead; Dave Barry Slept Here: A Sort of History of the United States; Lessons from Lucy: The Simple Joys of an Old, Happy Dog; and Best. State. Ever.: A Florida Man Defends His Homeland. Two of Barry’s books were used as the basis for the CBS TV sitcom Dave’s World. Mapping the intersecting fates of a young mother who stumbles upon treasure, a debauched newspaper man, a wannabe reality star, and other oddballs, Swamp Story is a quintessentially Floridian caper story.
