In the twenty-one pieces collected in this book, P.J. O'Rourke visits the Lebanese civil war and the Marcos election campaign, sees Russia through the bottom of a vodka bottle and examines sundry aspects of Western civilization, such as the great bicycle menace, the history of the last fifteen minutes and 'How to drive fast on drugs while getting your wing-wang squeezed and not spill your drink.'

Originally published in 1987, Republican Party Reptile is the first collection from one of America's most celebrated humorists. Mean, outrageous and always wildly funny, P. J. O'Rourke is a writer and journalist of extraordinary skill.

The funniest American writer I have read since Thurber

Tom Sharpe

Extremely literate, funny, irreverent and refreshingly unpatriotic . . . these essays are a delight

Daily Telegraph

P.J. O'Rourke has to be the funniest writer going, and boy does he go. This is high-octane wit, S. J. Perelman on acid
