O'Rourke, was at one time a raving pinko, with scars on his formerly bleeding heart to prove it. Here, P. J. shows how his socialist idealism and avant-garde aesthetic tendencies were cured and how he acquired a healthy and commendable interest in national defense, the balanced budget, Porsches, and Cohiba cigars. P. J. O'Rourke's message is that there's hope for all those suffering from acute Bohemianism, or as he puts it, "Pull your pants up, turn your hat around, and get a job." Quantity Available: 1.

Bored of the Rings

Gollancz, London, 2001. First Edition
 Hardcover Hardcover. Fine Condition/Fine. First Edition. First impression. Size: Duodecimo12mo. 228 pages. The dust wrapper is not price clipped and shows only minor shelf-wear. . This BOOK IS IN STOCK and READY TO MAIL NOW. Your book when ordered will be securely packed and promptly dispatched by Great Southern Books. Sometimes childish, sometimes rude, always clever and always very, very funny this book has delighted most, and outraged a few, Tolkien fans in the US for nearly 30 years. Pulling in references to popular culture and fantasy literature as a whole this is a killingly effective parody of Lord of the Rings. From the dreary Goddamn (Gollum), to the feckless Arrowroot (Aragorn), the bungling Goodgulf (Gandalf) to the timid, meanminded boggies Frito (Frodo) and Dildo (Bilbo) no character is safe. Fleeing the Nozdrul, bored by acid-casualty Tim Benzedrine and harrassed throughout by the minions of Sorhed the fellowship move through a Middle Earth like no other. Short, sharp and very much to the point even Tolkien would be hard-pressed to surpress a giggle at Bored of the Rings. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 500 grams.

Humorist O'Rourke shifts gears, covering and combining past pieces on cars (for Automobile, Car and Driver, Esquire and Forbes) with new material to set this auto anthology in motion. Much has been reworked ?because the writing--how to put this gently to myself--sucked.Ł Starting with car journalism language (?Drop the bottle and grab the throttleŁ), he steers the reader toward California cars: ┼?Many automobiles were purchased to attract members of L.A.'s eight or ten opposite sexes.He writes about a variety of vehicles, from off-road racers to Philippine jeepneys (?a Willys cut in half and lengthenedŁ). Accelerating the humor, he updates his 1979 account of a 700-mile weekend trip through Michigan and Indiana: ?I can imagine what the farm girls and small town teen angels who looked so longingly at the Harley-Davidson FXE-80 Super Glide would have thought if I had been riding a Segway: 'dork.'Ł His early essay ?How to Drive Fast on Drugs While Getting Your Wing-wang Squeezed and Not Spill Your DrinkŁ is followed by wild road trips, NASCAR nights and selecting ?a new grocery hauler, parent trap, Keds sled, family bus.┬Ł Never in neutral, O'Rourke offers laughter on wheels.

Through humorous and engaging case studies, you'll read about boyfriends who might be gay, gamers who won't step up to the plate, and wimps who won't go down for the count. You'll meet Dating DUPEs (Desperately Under Pressure to Evaluate) and their antagonistic ARSEs (Anti-Relationship Suspect Examinees). You'll gain unprecedented access to previously classified relationship rap sheets: detailed reports that reveal interpersonal infractions, mating misdemeanors, and flirtatious felonies. You'll boldly go where no civilian has gone before as we apply the latest forensic tools to decipher complex dating data: From testing for SPARK (Sexual Potential and Romantic Kinship), to consulting with undercover agents in the MBU (Missing Boyfriends Unit), Kerner ventures above the law and beneath the covers.

Your book when ordered will be securely packed and promptly dispatched by Great Southern Books. Where do we come from? Who created us? Why are we here? These are questions that have sporadically interested people since the dawn of time, but whose answers have continually eluded us. Now in their new book, Jon Stewart and "The Daily Show" writing staff (who include the team behind "The Onion") tackle them and many more with their trademark wit, irreverence and intelligence. They will take us on an intellectual journey through time - a quest back to the very moment of creation - that will maybe, just maybe help us figure out exactly how and why everything got so irretrievably f****ed up. From applications for genetic reconstitution by aliens to the meanings of anatomy, gender or nourishment, every aspect of life on this planet is reexplored, reexamined and made newly hilarious in this book.

Clive James has never been able to conceal his passion for air travel. Before he attained long trousers he could identify every aircraft that rattled the crockery in his house near Kingsford Smith aerodrome near Sydney, and he spent his adolescence making himself indispensible to the cleaners who swept out the planes. James' original two 'Postcards' to the Observer recorded his first return to Sydney after fifteen years in Europe. After that, Postcards arrived from around the world and became a popular occasional feature in that newspaper. Journalist, critic, television performer, poet and novelist, Clive James is also a master of the art of travelling. He conveys his curiosity for both the great event and the telling detail with irresistible with and vitality. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 500 grams.
