If scathing, uproarious, and insightful political satire were not enough, for more than 30 years P. J. O'Rourke has written about his love affair with the automobile. His newest book, Driving Like Crazy: Thirty Years of Vehicular Hell-bending, Celebrating America the Way It's Supposed to Be--With an Oil Well in Every Backyard, a Cadillac Escalade in Every Carport, and the Chairman of the Federal Reserve Mowing Our Lawn combines his classic articles on automobiles with new material and traces the birth and death of America's car obsession.
With more than 1 million words of trenchant journalism under his byline and more citations in the Penguin Dictionary of Humorous Quotations than any living writer, O'Rourke has established himself as a premier political satirist. He is the best-selling author of 16 books, including Parliament of Whores, Give War a Chance, Eat the Rich, The CEO of the Sofa, Holidays in Hell, Peace Kills and On the Wealth of Nations. Both Time and The Wall Street Journal have labeled O'Rourke "the funniest writer in America."
Conservative journalist and satirist P.J. O'Rourke discusses America's saga with the automobile as a symbol of freedom. He expresses concern over how the forthcoming 'Obamamobile' is yet another governmental restriction on personal freedom.
