Dave Barry and Alan Zweibel are and have written Lunatics

Order a copy of Dave Barry and Alan Zweibel’s new book Lunatics.

Just in time for after the holiday season, when no one is buying anything, comes Dave Barry and Alan Zweibel’s new book Lunatics.

Stolen from Publishers Weekly:

“Humorists Barry (Tricky Business) and Zweibel (The Other Shulman) team up to spin the madcap adventure of Philip Horkman and Jeffrey A. Peckerman, who meet on the soccer pitch of a Fort Lee, N.J., girls’ 10-and-under league championship game, where Horkman calls Peckerman’s daughter offside. Alternating chapters of mutual loathing between Horkman, a coarse, “forensic plumber,” and Peckerman, the progressive owner of a pet store called the Wine Shop, chronicle a fight that escalates by accident and miscalculation to encompass high seas piracy and revolution. As unwitting as the characters in Woody Allen’s Without Feathers—or, better yet, as inept as Bananas’ Fielding Mellish—Horkman and Peckerman stumble over themselves trying to escape police, nudists, a lemur named Buddy, a tank in Tiananmen Square, fruit-wielding Somalis, Yemeni terrorists, Chuck E. Cheese, and Donald Trump. Energetic, scatological, and profoundly silly.”

Lunatics comes out Jan. 10 and is available on Amazon.com.

  • Joe –

    Dave and I are aware that so soon after Christmas people may be tapped out. Hopefully, they’ll have enough money left over to buy “Lunatics”. For those who don’t, however, please let your readers know that we are more than willing to go to their homes and read the book to them.

  • Hi Alan,

    That is a generous offer, but I think most people would be afraid to have you and Dave in their homes. If you promised not to steal anything, this might work.
