Handpicked and introduced by the humourist himself, Thrown Under the Omnibus is the essential P.J. O'Rourke anthology - a must-have for all fans.
P. J. O'Rourke has written sixteen books on subjects as diverse as politics and cars and etiquette and economics. His book about Washington, Parliament of Whores, and his book about international conflict and crisis, Give War a Chance, both reached number one on the New York Times bestseller list. He is a contributing editor at the Weekly Standard, H. L. Mencken fellow at the Cato Institute, a regular panelist on NPR's Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me, and a columnist for the Daily Beast. He lives in rural New England, as far away from the things he writes about as he can get.
P.J. O'Rourke is the rarest of breeds; a veteran rightwinger who is both funny and clever but not bitter at all... It's very funny, utterly thought-provoking... O'Rourke emerges as a hero for admitting what few of his generation dare to. * The Times on The Baby Boom * Few journalists are as bold and iconoclastic as P.J. O'Rourke... Thoroughly entertaining. * Mail on Sunday on The Baby Boom * P.J. O'Rourke is what happens when America does Grumpy Old Men. Instead of sour-faced curmudgeons bleating that "politics is just a load of crap", you get a succession of amusing and incisive observations about why politics is a load of crap. * Spectator * Here is (nearly) everything you wanted to know about P. J. O'Rourke but were afraid to ask. * RTE Guide *
