About this Item

xv, [1], 332, [2] pages. Inscribed on fep. From Wilipedia: "Arthur "Art" Buchwald (October 20, 1925 January 17, 2007) was an American humorist best known for his long-running column in The Washington Post, which in turn was carried as a syndicated column in many other newspapers. His column focused on political satire and commentary. He received the Pulitzer Prize for Outstanding Commentary in 1982 and in 1986 was elected to the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. While in Paris, Buchwald became the only correspondent to substantively interview Elvis Presley, both at the Prince de Galles Hotel, where the soon-to-be Sgt. Presley was staying during a weekend off from his Army stint in Germany. Buchwald returned to the United States in 1962 and was syndicated by Tribune Media Services. His column appeared in more than 550 newspapers at its height, and he published more than 30 books in his lifetime. He also contributed fumetti to Marvel Comics' Crazy Magazine which tore apart statistics regarding 1970s campus life. In 1982, Buchwald's syndicated newspaper column won the Pulitzer Prize for commentary. A popular political humorist looks back at the Reagan administration and finds it even funnier than it had seemed earlier. Derived from a Kirkus review: Buchwald's 21st collection of satires, and something of an annual event. Therein lies his strength. For he produces so many of these little pieces that an annual edition is able to retain its timeliness. Timeliness, however, is not the only criteria for holding a reader's interest. Other considerations are such qualities as originality and freshness. Buchwald has his audience and he regales them here with swipes at Reagan's tax policy, Third-World credit, female vice-presidential aspirations, Washington real-estate prices, Star Wars, and about 130 other current topics. Perhaps, in the end, anyone who can elicit a chuckle in these increasingly surly times has to be considered a valuable asset. Bookseller Inventory # 74800

About this title


The popular syndicated satirist takes a second glance at the humorous side of the Reagan administration and a fresh look into some other aspects of American life--from the telephone company to Cabbage Patch Dolls

From Library Journal:

You've read one Art Buchwald book, you've read 'em all. Right? Wrong. What makes Buchwald a widely read columnisthis week-to-week ability to make light of the human comedy with unerring accuracyis what ensures the success of his collections of selections. Who and what is Buchwald ``picking on'' in this volume? Government lead ers, including the President, members of Congress, the cabinet, and the jus tice department, as well as a variety of professions: medicine, journalism, real estate; and then, of course, members of his family and anyone else who catches his fancy. There's a laugh to be found on every page. And at 332 pages, that works out to a laugh a day for almost a year. As well as some intelligent hu mor, to boot. That's worth the price.
