SORT BY Relevancy
"Pulp Friction with Paul Levine" is excited to welcome to the studio, the incomparable, the funny, the crazy Dave Barry for an hour of laughter and book talk. Dave has been a professional humorist ever since he discovered that professional humor was a lot easier than working.
For many years Dave wrote a newspaper column that appeared in more than 500 newspapers and generated thousands of letters from readers who thought he should be fired. Despite this, Dave won the Pulitzer Prize for commentary, although he misplaced it for several years, which is why his wife now keeps it in a secure location that he does not know about. One of Dave's olumns was largely responsible for the movement to observe International Talk Like a Pirate Day every year on September 19. This is probably his most enduring achievement.
Dave will be interviewed by award-winning novelist Paul Levine, author of the Jake Lassiter series, most recently "State vs. Lassiter." http://www.paul-levine.com

The latest outrages and what we can do about them
Author Stephen Hunter joins us to discuss his newest book "Sniper's Honor". Powerline Blog writes, "We are huge fans of Stephen Hunter. Steve is of course the novelist and Pulitzer Prize-winning former film critic of the Washington Post. Of Steve, Glenn Reynolds concisely holds: “Love him, and his books.”
"When I began the book, off a half-assed, rather childish outline all those months ago, no one knew that in May 2014, Ukraine was going to be a sort of ground zero, not merely between Russia and Ukraine but also between Russia and the West. I only knew I wanted to tell a story of a brave Soviet woman sniper who was lost to history when "disappeared" after a failed mission in the fall of 1944, as the German army was retreating from its Russian catastrophe."
Join us for a fascinating trip to the Carpathian Mountains, the fir tree plains of Belarus and the war to end all wars.
