>DAVE BARRY'S GREATEST HITS In this guffaw-full collection, Miami Herald-based humorist Dave Barry ponders such things as housecleaning techniques: "When I hear the word 'filthy' used to describe a bathroom, I think about this bar where I used to hang out called Joe's Sportsman's Lounge, where the men's room had bacteria you could enter in a rodeo." (Fawcett)

CAT CHASER An aging ex-Marine and a corrupt Dominican general tango and talk tough in this reissue of Elmore Leonard's brisk mystery. (Avon)

PIGEON Patrick Suskind, author of the highly original 1986 mystery Perfume, wrote this disappointing, slim novel about a man and a bird. (Pocket)
