United States president Donald Vanderdamp is having a hell of a time getting his nominees appointed to the Supreme Court. After one nominee is rejected for insufficiently appreciating To Kill a Mockingbird, the president chooses someone so beloved by voters that the Senate won’t have the guts to reject her—Judge Pepper Cartwright, the star of the nation’s most popular reality show, Courtroom Six.

Will Pepper, a straight-talking Texan, survive a confirmation battle in the Senate? Will becoming one of the most powerful women in the world ruin her love life? And even if she can make it to the Supreme Court, how will she get along with her eight highly skeptical colleagues, including a floundering Chief Justice who, after legalizing gay marriage, learns that his wife has left him for another woman?

Soon Pepper finds herself in the middle of a constitutional crisis, a presidential reelection campaign that the president is determined to lose, and oral arguments of a romantic nature. Supreme Courtship is another classic Christopher Buckley comedy about the Washington institutions most deserving of ridicule.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Great characters, great narrator, great fun: Politics was never so much fun before Christopher Buckley got a hold of it and gave it a good shake.”

    Philadelphia Inquirer

  • “Once again, Buckley returns to his pet theme: the vanity and perfidy of the capital’s ruling elite. And once again he delivers serious insights along with antics…At a time of high political absurdity, Buckley remains our sharpest guide to the capital.”

    New York Times Review of Books

  • “Buckley’s ingenious and mischievous tale of a Washington shakeup via an injection of good old American authenticity is funny and entertaining…clever, merry, escapist.”

    " Classic Buckley. So good "

    " Although not as strong as some of his other novels, Buckley is in fine form. This time his novel, 'Supreme Courtship', pokes fun at the United States' most venerable institution, the Supreme Court, and as usual, Buckley is spot on in capturing the absurdity, while sounding totally plausible, of politics in the Beltway, and the media that covers it. 'Supreme Courtship' kept me giggling all the way through, and was the perfect summer book--light (literally, too, at only 285 pages) and entertaining. "

    " Light, easy read. Lawyers will probably enjoy it more than non-lawyers because of all the law related jokes. Basically, a sassy Fordham Law grad manages to get on the Supreme Court and causes all sorts of trouble. Definitely recommend. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Noe Crockett | 1/31/2014

    " Again, I adore Christopher Buckley. This book was great fun. Pepper Cartwright is great, but what I love about Buckley's books is that they are from several character's perspectives and not just one. It makes for a much richer story. I also like how his books show how these seemingly silly government situations he comes up with in his books are actually possible because of loopholes existing in the way our government works. It's a bit frightening actually and definitely thought provoking. The more of his books I read, the more I want. "
