Reading these essays is the equivalent of being in the company of a tremendously witty and enlightening companion. Praised as "both deeply informed and deeply funny" by The Wall Street Journal, Buckley will have you laughing and reflecting in equal measure
Boomsday a novel by Christopher Buckley( Recording )
12 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 647 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Boomsday, Christopher Buckley envisions the nation's next brouhaha--generational warfare between Baby Boomers and younger Americans who don't want to be stuck paying the bill, and how this conflict provokes the most outlandish presidential campaign ever. Cassandra Devine, a straight-A student, was like any other seventeen-year-old Yale hopeful until was forced to join the army because her father spent her tuition money on a dotcom start-up. Years later, Cassandra has become a Washington spin doctor and blogger who rails against the "Un-greatest" generation's mishandling of the Social Security debt. When she learns her father remarried and bought his dim-witted son's way into Yale, she suggests that Baby Boomers be given government incentives to kill themselves by age 75. This proposal catches on with outraged citizens and a senator seeking the youth vote for his presidential bid
Washington schlepped here : walking in the nation's capital by Christopher Buckley( Book )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this book, former White House staffer Buckley takes us for several walks around the town and shares with us a bit of his "other" Washington. They include "Dante's Paradiso" (Union Station); the "Zero Milestone of American democracy" (the U.S. Capitol); the "Almost Pink House" (the White House); and many other historical (and often hysterical) journeys. Buckley is the sort of guide who pries loose the clichés that cling to a place as mythic as D.C. Insightful and practical, this book shows us that even a city whose chief industry is government bureaucracy is a lot funnier and more surprising than its media-ready image might let on.--From publisher description
