NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE - NATIONAL BESTSELLER - NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY PEOPLE AND USA TODAY - A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK

Nobody blows smoke like Nick Naylor. He's a spokesman for the Academy of Tobacco Studies-in other words, a flack for cigarette companies, paid to promote their product on talk and news shows. The problem? He's so good at his job, so effortlessly unethical, that he's become a target for both anti-tobacco terrorists and for the FBI. In a country where half the people want to outlaw pleasure and the other want to sell you a disease, what will become of Nick Naylor?

Reviews

"A savagely funny satirical farce. . . . produces moments that make you laugh out loud at their inspired absurdity."
-The New York Times

"Buckley's caricatures of Washington politics, corporate power plays, media spin control, Hollywood pretensions and the human foibles of self-delusion and denial are appallingly right on the money."
-San Francisco Chronicle

"Seriously funny . . . Forget apple pie. [Buckley's] novel is as American as pork barrels and public relations."
-The Atlanta Journal & Constitution

"The superior goofball plot, raffish cast and zany sex scenes make this the funniest of Buckley's books."
-Time

"Hilarious."
-The New York Times Book Review
