Christopher Buckley is one of the funniest (and shrewdest) writers alive, founding editor of Forbes FYI and author, among other things, of the anti-PC Thank You for Smoking. He's at it again, with a fearsomely un-PC, fearsomely funny, trenchantly observant tome called Florence of Arabia, about a fictional State Department factotum who decides on her own to liberate women in the Middle East.
All I can say is ... I LOVE IT!
