Dave Barry's Guide to Marriage And/Or Se

Dave Barry, Author, Jerry O'Brien, Illustrator Rodale Press $12.95 (96p) ISBN 978-0-87857-725-5
Syndicated columnist Barry is just as funny here as in his previous humor books, Babies and Other Hazards of Sex and Claw Your Way to the Top. With a jaundiced eye, he comments on dating and marriage: opening lines (""How about that Middle East?''); French kissing (``a really sexy thing to do, according to the French people, although you should bear in mind that they also like to eat snails''); Disney World honeymoons (``They say `honeymooning in Florida' because they don't want people to know that the highlight of the whole wild lustful romantic adventure was shaking hands with Goofy''); grounds for divorce (``wearing shorts and black knee socks at the same time''). In addition to the litany of love-life lunacies, there are O'Brien's 60 entertaining illustrations, including maps, pie charts, cartoons, diagrams and comic strips. A ``funny index'' not seen by PW. Author tour. (October)
