Synopsis

Synopsis

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 the original Puff Daddy?
Christopher Buckley

About Christopher Buckley

Christopher Buckley - Thank You For Smoking

Christopher Buckley is a novelist and editor of Forbes FYI magazine. He lives in Washington, D.C., with his wife and two children and dog, Duck. In 1998, he was inducted into the Légion d'honneur by the president of the Republic of France for "extraordinary contributions to French culture," despite the fact that his French is barely sufficient to order a meal in a restaurant. He has been an adviser to every president since William Howard Taft, a remarkable achievement, since he was born in 1952. His next book, a refutation of the theories of the physicist Stephen Hawking, will be published this fall by Princeton University Press.
Praise

Praise

“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
