"Miami Herald" columnist Barry "is" making up large chunks of his latest collection, but that's par for Barry's best-selling course. From "Father Faces Life: A Long-Overdue Attack on Natural Childbirth," which first earned him visibility, through off-kilter takes on sneakers, UFOs, ubiquitous health hazards, "Consumers from Mars," and radio's not-so-golden oldies, Barry blends fact and fiction, family frustrations and cultural anomalies, sarcasm and sentimentality. The current collection includes several longer "Herald" articles along with Barry's usual column-length pieces. With "Dave's World" now a fixture on CBS-TV's highly rated Monday night schedule, expect requests from Barry fans old and new.
