Dave Barry's latest novel, Insane City, is hard to describe. Seth Weinstein is on his way to Miami for his wedding. Seth is a guy who's never had much success in life and who's reduced to writing advertising tweets. His bride-to-be, Tina Clark, is highly successful and from an incredibly rich family. Seth can't figure out why she wants to marry him, but we learn that it's because he's a nice guy.
And of course because he's a nice guy, Seth immediately gets involved in a series of events that escalate into wild insanity by the end of the novel. The ingredients include Haitian immigrants, a stripper and her huge boyfriend, Seth's parents and their brownies, Seth's wedding posse, Tina's dope-smoking sister, an orangutan named Trevor, police chases, a guy with a pet python, a nice young woman who wants to change her life, revenge-seeking bodyguards, the Miami police force, a sky-high billionaire, and a pirate ship. I may have forgotten a few things. Things never slow down for long. Also, it's very vulgar. I expect people will either find this hilarious or hate it. I found it hilarious.
