In what is either a master marketing plan or a rather bizarre stroke of luck Christopher Buckley has a new book out with the title They Eat Puppies, Don’t They? just as the subject of dogs as a meal became a subject in the presidential race and lit up social media.
As luck would have it, if you live in Central Ohio you have the chance to hear Mr. Buckley talk about his new book thanks to the folks at the Thurber House:
What: Thurber House‘s May Special Event featuring Christopher Buckley, author of They Eat Puppies, Don’t They?
When: Wednesday, May 16; A wine and hors d’oeuvres reception will be held from 5:30-6:45 p.m., followed by the reading at 7:00 p.m.
Where: Columbus Museum of Art
Details: A past Thurber Prize for American Humor award winner, Buckley is one of the most beloved political satirists writing today. In his brand new novel, They Eat Puppies, Don’t They?, a Washington lobbyist and his attractive female aid are determined to gain Congressional approval for a top secret weapons system. In order to get passage for this, they start a rumor that the Chinese secret service has plans to assassinate the Dalai Lama … the result: a series of crises taking the Chinese and the United States to the precipice of war.
