Christopher Buckley is at his best with this extraordinary,
wide-ranging selection of essays both hilarious and poignant, irreverent and delightful.
In his first book of essays since his 1997 bestseller, Wry Martinis, Buckley delivers a rare
combination of big ideas and truly fun writing. Tackling subjects ranging from
“How to Teach Your Four-Year-Old to Ski” to “A Short History of the Bug
Zapper,” and “The Art of Sacking” to literary friendships with Joseph Heller and
Christopher Hitchens, he is at once a humorous storyteller, astute cultural
critic, adventurous traveler, and irreverent historian.
Reading these essays is the equivalent of being in the
company of a tremendously witty and enlightening companion. Buckley will have
you laughing and reflecting in equal measure. Download and start listening now!
