Dave Barry cracks the code for a sure-fire blockbuster

Dave Barry has written a blockbuster novel. Dave Barry’s Latest Column inspired by “The DaVinci Code” by Dan Brown, which has sold 253 trillion copies in hardcover because it’s such a compelling page-turner. He says nobody can put this book down.

“The key to “The DaVinci Code” is that it’s filled with startling plot twists, and almost every chapter ends with a “cliffhanger,” so you have to keep reading to see what will happen. Using this formula, I wrote the following blockbuster novel, titled “The Constitution Conundrum.” It’s fairly short now, but when I get a huge publishing contract, I’ll flesh it out to 100,000 words by adding sentences.
