About the Author:

Christopher Buckley, "the quintessential political novelist of his time" according to Fortune magazine, is the winner of the distinguished ninth annual Thurber Prize for American Humor, Tom Wolfe has described him as "one of the funniest writers in the English language."
Buckley is the author of eleven books, many of them national bestsellers, including Thank You For Smoking, God Is My Broker, No Way To Treat A First Lady, and Florence of Arabia. His books have been translated into over a dozen languages, including Russian and Korean.

From AudioFile:

The acting talents of Janeane Garofalo and the satirical prose of Christopher Buckley combine in a send-up of politics, public relations, and intergenerational relationships. Garofalo perfectly captures the dry wit and sarcasm of Gen-X public relations professional Cassandra Devine, who is trying to warn her blog readers that the economy is about to collapse due to the impending retirement of millions of Baby Boomers. Garofalo also delivers the highbrow accent of a Massachusetts senator and creates a hilarious portrayal of a Southern Baptist senator. Buckleys novel is a delightful mix of strong characters and plot twists, and Garofalos performance more than does it justice.
