"The Trump satire we've been waiting for....The comic genius behind such classics as 'Thank You for Smoking' has now given us an outrageously funny novel equal to the absurdity roiling Washington.... Amid the twin economic and health catastrophes of our era, Buckley has done the impossible: Made Politics Funny Again. Laughter may not be the best medicine for covid-19, but it's a heck of a lot better than bleach." --Washington Post
"Cutting-edge political satire...[a] rambunctious roman Γ  clef in the form of a memoir written in federal prison by President Trump's seventh chief of staff....Buckley's keenly informed, caustically ironic, and cheerfully raunchy comedy is both rollicking and hard-hitting in its outrage, a bold indictment perfectly targeted for this intensely polarized election year." --Booklist
"Buckley is an old hand at this....Topical lampoonery piles up quickly....Buckley is intelligent and ingenious and at times pitch-perfect. The book's stand-in for Kellyanne Conway has a voice described as 'meth-lab Lauren Bacall.' The C.I.A.'s advice to Nutterman about how to disappear blossoms into satisfying absurdity. And there's a standout (and almost standalone) chapter that describes a cult, the Ever Trumpers, who want the president to shoot them on Fifth Avenue."--New York Times Book Review
"Veteran Washington satirist Buckley skewers the Trump administration in a farce that imagines several all-too-credible political crises ahead of Election Day 2020....Buckley, a former White House speechwriter, adds comic spin to recent events, providing a plausible view of the crude, jury-rigged, stopgap daily carnival that is No. 45 at work....Buckley is a smart, entertaining observer."--Kirkus
