Synopsis

This book confirms P.J. O'Rourke's unassailable position as 'America's greatest prose comedian' (Sunday Times).

Bestselling humorist O'Rourke introduces readers to his assistant, friends, family and smart-aleck babysitter, as he reflects on such topics as cell phones, Christmas catalogues, Instant Messaging, toddlers, TV and how the Gettysburg Address would have turned out if written on an iMac. He reviews Hillary Clinton, and he observes youth culture, including current celebs, Britney, Moby and Eminem. This is a witty wide-angled world view, from O'Rourke's own living room.
