Writing Snoopy


No Way to Treat a First Lady by Christopher Buckley (author of "Thank you for Smoking") was really good. When I started reading it, I was afraid it was going to be a John Grisham-esque courtroom drama book, but it is oh so much more than that. It is hard to make a book so ridiculous and at the same time getting your readers to think that they've seen all of those characters in real life. People were staring at me strangely when at times I would laugh out loud. It's almost the "Waiting for Gufman" of courtroom drama.

Definitely more books by Buckley are going on my wishlist.
