Dave Barry Slept Here: A Sort of History of the United Statesby Dave Barry
Synopses & Reviews
If you love to laugh, if you love your country, if you are unaware that "the Sixth Amendment states that if you are accused of a crime, you have the right to a trial before a jury of people too stupid to get out of jury duty," Dave Barry Slept Here is the book for you. Every single momentous event and crucial movement is covered, including:
The Birthing Contractions of a Nation
Kicking Some British Butt
The Forging of a Large, Wasteful Bureaucracy
The Civil War: A Nation Pokes Itself in the Eyeball
The Fifties: Peace, Prosperity, Brain Death
The Reagan-Bush Years: Napping Toward Glory
And much more!
A Pulitzer Prize-winning humorist and columnist whose growing popularity is making him the next Buchwald has his way with the "history" of the mother country, including its founding fathers. An offbeat look at the U.S. for fans of Patrick McManus and Lewis Grizzard.
