O’Rourke has reported on the inner workings of the U.S. government, explained the global economy, and written on the American automobile industry. At this Cato Book Forum, he will tackle the big, broad problems stemming from the generation that, for better or worse, changed everything.
“P. J. O’Rourke’s Baby Boom may just be his best book ever,” states Christopher Buckley — winner of the Thurber Prize for American Humor. “A terrific American memoir, in tone a beguiling mix of Jean Shepherd and ‘Animal House’. In fact, I’m going to revise my prior statement and say flat-out that this is O’Rourke’s best book ever, which is saying a lot.”
