The Pulitzer Prize-winning humorist joins us with his first solo adult novel in over a decade – the darkly comic Insane City. The book is a riotous tale of a destination wedding gone awry with Russian gangsters, angry strippers, a pimp as big as the Death Star, a very desperate Haitian refugee on the run with her two children from some very bad men, and an eleven-foot Burmese albino python named Blossom.

Barry talks about the insane-ness of Miami as inspiration, and answers questions about his failed attempt at rock-stardom, and whether it's advisable to transport a dead shark via commuter train. Plus, Barry performs with house band Dreadnaught.

Writers on a New England Stage is a partnership between NHPR and The Music Hall
