An essential collection of career-spanning writings by the political satirist and #1 New York Timesâ€“bestselling author of Parliament of Whores.
From his early pieces for the National Lampoon, through his classic reporting as Rolling Stoneâ€™s International Affairs editor in the 1980s and 1990s, and his brilliant, inimitable political journalism and analysis, P. J. Oâ€™Rourke has been entertaining and provoking readers with high octane prose, a gonzo Republican attitude, and a rare ability to make you laugh out loud. Christopher Buckley once described his work as â€śS. J. Perelman on acid.â€ť
Thrown Under the Omnibus brings together his funniest, most outrageous, most controversial, and most loved pieces in the definitive Oâ€™Rourke reader. Handpicked and introduced by the humorist himself, Thrown Under the Omnibus is the essential Oâ€™Rourke anthology.
â€śThe funniest writer in America.â€ť â€”The Wall Street Journal
