Beating Around the Bush by Art Buchwald

Buchwald has single-handedly restored humor to contemporary journalism.- Los Angeles Times Quite simply, the funniest US newspaper columnist published today and one of the nations sharpest political satirists.- Newsweek Buchwald is a pitiless chronicler of human folly, particularly as it manifests itself in public officials; the targets of his satire are pretension, inconsistency, and hypocrisy. He makes his readers laugh out loud, then leaves them wondering whether what they laughed at might not equally well have made them weep.- Library Journal Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post columnist Art Buchwald returns undaunted to examine the ridiculous people and preposterous events that we call our daily reality. With an introduction by Garry Trudeau, Beating Around the Bush collects Buchwalds recent columns, in which his satirical voice darts at politicians, power, corporations, and the media without pause. A self-described troublemaker, Buchwald continues to represent the great American traits of skepticism, humor, and a refusal to compromise in the face of absurdity. Now revised and updated with new columns.
