"This humorous novel wisely goes for jokes over biting satire"

Buckley, best known for Thank You for Smoking, a satire of the tobacco lobby, has form for fine comical political writing. He was a chief speechwriter to vice-president George HW Bush and drew on that for his first novel, The White House Mess (1986), the fictional reminiscences of a personal assistant to an ill-starred president.

Wisely, Buckley has played this novel for laughs rather than trying to make satirical points. Satire cannot compete with the outlandish reality of the Trump years.
