About this title

Synopsis:

Whose Rose Garden is it Anyway?

From Publishers Weekly:

In the world according to Buchwald, facile actor Ronald Reagan has passed the torch to "I am not a wimp" President George Bush, whose right-hand man, proud ex-National Guardsman Dan Quayle, brings impressive golfing skills to his new post. This latest batch of columns from the prolific Washington humorist considers Gary Hart, who "chose love over his country" and was sent home by the voters, and the gun lobbyists, fearful that the shrapnel will hit the fan. Buchwald has no dearth of targets: public relations-pro Mikhail Gorbachev, airlines mogul "Captain" Frank Lorenzo and great humanitarians like Adnan Khashoggi and Donald Trump draw his fire; he also shreds Oliver North, Michael Dukakis, Jimmy Swaggart, the Exxon tanker oil spill, airline unsafety and the commercializaton of Christmas. If the civilizing influence of professional football doesn't save the American people, Buchwald's imaginary dialogues and quasi-populist rants may help to keep us sane.

Store Description

The Reader's Corner is such fun,it's too bad you have to buy our books on line. We have eight foot tall outside bookshelves across the entire front of the store. There is a money slot in the door for night sales, which go to support National Public Radio. Inside, which can be too crowded at times, are surprisingly good books, only 1% are ever listed on-line. We also sell records, music cd's, comic books, mags, computer software and games. Best of all is the found art decorating every spare spot. The motto on the front door: NO SHOOTING, NO SMOKING, NO MOONING THE MANAGEMENT.
