Synopsis: A wickedly funny faux-children's biography recounts Young Dick Cheney’s youthful lust for guns, oil, and the girl of his dreams.
He was born among the big skies and cow pies of the Great American West. And yet from these humble beginnings, he would grow to become the most famous, most powerful Dick ever to inhabit the Vice Presidency. In this often shocking, frequently touching, clearly unauthorized biography, faux journalists Bruce Kluger and David Slavin (National Public Radio) reveal the inspiring and sometimes even true story of Richard B. Cheney frontiersman, freedom fighter, fatty. Meticulously reported (including a footnote!) and lushly illustrated by renegade artist Tim Foley, this unprecedented, spell-checked triumph of painstaking conjecture brings to life the Dick nobody knows: a secretive yet sensitive boy from Wyoming with a shoot-from-the-hip, shoot-in-the-face style all his own. From his mischievous boyhood friendships, to his high-octane high school romance with the one girl who knew what made Dick tick, Young Dick Cheney: Great American is destined to be cherished by patriots and Democrats alike a book that will captivate readers everywhere for months to come.
"At last, as Bush/Cheney staggers toward its final throes, here comes a book that pries back the door on our secretive Vice President and delivers a double-barreled blast of satiric buckshot. I predict Kluger and Slavin will be greeted as liberators!"
Arianna Huffington, The Huffington Post
"This book is a hoot, a big hoot a page-turner and a side-splitter that is so irreverent, its authors will undoubtedly soon be in the Witness Protection Program. Hide this book, read it alone in the dark and fall down laughing!"
Phil Donahue, talk show pioneer
"This is a funny book. (I mean, I’m not going to say it’s the funniest thing in the world. That I reserve for my own work.)"
Mel Brooks, writer/producer/director
"Bring it with you to Gitmo."
Keith Olbermann, MSNBC's Countdown With Keith Olbermann
"A must-have item for spring-break!"
"If you've spent the last eight years gagging on Vice President Cheney and his hijinks, this should take the bad taste out of your mouth."
Lewis Black, Comedian/Host of Comedy Central's "Root Of All Evil"
