Product description

Review

Lessons from Lucy is extremely funny (in a couple of places I laughed until water ran from my eyes and a slightly thicker fluid came from my nose). You’d expect that from Dave Barry. What you might not expect is how insightful it is, and downright touching. If you’ve grown old along with Dave, you will want to read this book. You’ll also want to read it if you’re a dog lover, but that’s optional. These are very lively life lessons even for the canine-impaired.”
— Stephen King

“We couldn’t stop laughing.”
— Parade

“Delightful... witty and wise.”
— BookPage

“In his unique way, [Barry] has chronicled his generation for 35 years, cutting to the truth with his power tool of insightful humor. But now that Dave has gray in his Beatles haircut… he’s added a surprising element of seriousness to his comedic mania... Parts of Lucy are touching and sentimental, but there’s still a laugh on every page.”
— Sacramento Bee

“A little gem... The Pulitzer Prize winner... crafts a series of essays that, for the first time, reveal emotional depth to the man with the prankster pen... Barry makes a compelling case for gratefulness every single day.”
— Washington Independent Review of Books

“Barry’s anecdotes gave me belly laughs of recognition.... The book is easy to digest, enjoyable to read and good for you (you know what they say about laughter triggering endorphins). Barry’s humor knows no borders, and even the canine-ambivalent can give it two paws up.”
— Boomer Magazine

“An outrageously funny book in which Barry touches on all the things readers have come to love about his unique brand of slightly curmudgeonly, self-deprecating, stream of consciousness humor. Try as you might, however, it is hard to escape the fact that Lessons From Lucy is deep, sweet and downright touching.”
— The Bark

“All the classic trappings of beloved Florida humorist Dave Barry are here—the dad jokes, the wry observations, the charming self-sabotage... But there’s also something gentler at work in this ode to Barry’s patient mutt named Lucy—the effect of a dog who loves unconditionally.”
— Garden & Gun

“A gently life-affirming take on the things that dogs can teach us written in Dave’s genuinely inimitable — though everyone… tries — style.”
Arkansas Democrat Gazette

“Generates multiple real laughs on every page.”
— Shawangunk Journal
