About this title


A commencement speech involves One-eyed Mack, Oklahoma's lieutenant governor, with a young man searching for Soviet spies in order to join the CIA, as well as with the CIA itself, Rotarians, evangelists, grease pirates, and old friend C, director of the OBI

From Publishers Weekly:

Mack, the one-eyed lieutenant governor of Oklahoma who swashbuckled through Lehrer's Crown Oklahoma and Kick the Can , mixes it up with Russian spies in this wacky takeoff on the espionage genre. It seems that the president of a local Rotary club is actually a defected KGB operative, and an Afghan killer agent is on a mission to silence him. But the wrong man is targeted; the real defector turns out to be someone else, identifiable by his penchant for singing the score of the Broadway musical Oklahoma. Mack, whose hobby--filching intercity bus paraphernalia--will come back to haunt him, is surrounded by the usual oddballs. His son Tommy Walt opens a restaurant-grease recycling business; his wife, Jackie, expands her chain of drive-thru grocery stores; Governor Buffalo Joe Hayman schemes to sell off the Sooner State piecemeal to the Japanese. Lehrer (who co-anchors the MacNeil/Lehrer Newshour ) spoofs everything from open-casket funerals to college graduations in an Oklahoma teeming with FBI agents, dental technicians, televangelists and roadside advertising sculpture.
