Dave Barry Turns 65,
This review is from: You Can Date Boys When You're Forty: Dave Barry on Parenting and Other Topics He Knows Very Little About (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My husband and I have been Dave Barry fans since way back when the Washington Post actually printed his column every week. Dave has also helped navigate us into middle age with his "Turns 40" and "Turns 50" books, which is why we were disappointed there was no "Turns 60" book.
Dave helps make up for it here with a chapter on turning 65, appropriately titled "Death." In it, he tears up the usual topics of aging - Viagra commercials, junk mail for old folks, forgetting things - in his usual hilarious way, topping it off with a description of his funeral that I hope actually takes place and that William Shatner had better stick around for!
Yes, after all these years, he does have familiar schtick like remembering some obscure thing from the 50s or 60s (here, a Beach Boys song) while forgetting something that society deems important (math). Things like the grammar guide and writing guide have also been done before, but they're no less hysterical this time around.
