About Barry Yourgrau

See more books from this Author
Writer/performer Barry Yourgrau has been making people laugh their heads off--or gasp in astonishment--with such books as "Wearing Dad's Head" and "A Man Jumps Out of An Airplane". He's startled everyone with his appearances on MTV and National Public Radio. He even starred in a movie based on his writings, and in a music video too. He teased the world with his first book for kids, "My Curious Uncle Dudley". Barry woke up one day in the US as a kid. Now Barry's ready to unleash the hysterically dark fun and games from the deepest dark of his soul. "With my NASTYbook," grins Barry, nastily, "I invite you to share in those cruel, twisted and shockingly mischeivous delights I know you secretly adore--if you dare!" He got there all the way from South Africa, he claims... Or is this just another of his jokes?
