Writer and humorist Dave Barry has not one, but two books out. His new collection of essays, "Live Right and Find Happiness (Although Beer is Much Faster): Life Lessons and Other Ravings from Dave Barry," publishes today.

His previous collection, "You Can Date Boys When You're Forty: Dave Barry on Parenting and Other Topics He Knows Very Little About," also comes out in paperback today.

When that book came out last year, Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson took the opportunity to catch up with Dave Barry, whom he last interviewed in 1993; Jeremy was 11 at the time. Today we revisit that conversation.
