    The nationally bestselling novel 'Thank You For Smoking' defined Christopher Buckley's off-kilter satiric style for an audience unaware of his comedic imagination. Fans have rejoiced ever since and now the author returns with another outrageous and timely novel that offers the perfect solution to the coming Social Security crisis. Sharp-tongued PR wiz and devoted blogger Cassandra Devine politely suggest that Baby Boomers be given government incentives to kill themselves by age seventy-five. And something that starts as a modest proposal catches fire in a manufactured public relation phenomenon that may make more sense than people are willing to admit.

    A cornerstone of 20th century American literature, Catch-22 – a National Book Award for Fiction Finalist (1962) - is set in Italy during World War II. It is the story of the incomparable malingering bombardier, Yossarian, a hero who is furious because thousands of people he has never met are trying to kill him. But his real problem is not the enemy – it is his own army, which keeps increasing the number of missions the men must fly to complete their tour of duty. Yet if Yossarian makes any attempt to excuse himself from the perilous missions he’s assigned, he’ll be in violation of Catch-22, a hilariously sinister bureaucratic rule: a man is considered insane if he willingly continues to fly dangerous combat missions, but if he makes a formal request to be removed from duty, he is proven sane and therefore ineligible to be relieved. This 50th anniversary edition commemorates Heller’s masterpiece with a new introduction by Christopher Buckley; a wealth of critical essays and reviews by Norman Mailer, Alfred Kazin, Anthony Burgess, and others; rare papers and photos from Heller’s personal archive, and much more. 523p.

    Christopher Buckley moves within the same poem from the most commonplace, ordinary, drab, inarticulate experiences of life and language to the most lyrical, beautiful, and sublime. Buckley's art changes mud and dirty shoes into sky. A master of his art, he has much to teach us about seeing, thinking, and feeling. As Gerald Stern has put it, Buckley's "subject is radiance. So he hates fascism and believes we are more than dust. So I read him."

    A poem is a moral and mythic construct. Each decision the writer makes concerning the subject matter, form, diction, and tone reveals something about his or her vision of the world. Nowhere is that vision more on display than in an ars poetica, which is where a poet takes stock, writing down his or her articles of faith. An ars poetica is also a barometer for the cultural climate of one's times, and what the "readings" contained in this book suggest about post-Cold War America is that there are countless ways to interpret and transform our experiences. In the new world order the theater has changed yet again: the rise of ethnic conflict, neofascism, nationalism, and religious fundamentalism; the depletion of the earth's resources and devastation of innumberable ecosystems; continuing economic problems in both the developed and developing parts of the world; overpoplulation, the spread of AIDS and other communicable diseases;--these are dangers everyone faces. And poets are finding, in small ways and large, what will suffice for the next act.--Christopher Merrill
