Gary Buslik has indeed written a book of international intrigue, pork-crazed termites and motherhood. After the insane politics of this week, I needed intense comic relief and this book was just the ticket. If you have a twisted sense of humor like I do, you will love this book! 🙂 It has been a long time since I have laughed like this – it’s the best since Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Still swiping at the tears…
Here’s a slice:
Iranian president Akhmed teams up with the leaders of Venezuela and Cuba and their American intelligence agents to smuggle radioactive matzo balls into Miami Beach. But intelligence being as slippery a concept to these nincompoops as chicken fat on linoleum, when each member of the gang decides to ladle out his own personal nuke soup, holy terror Akhmed is left steaming. Will his plan to destroy America float like a fly or sink like a lead dumpling?
Star-crossed lovers, conniving academics, and blustery social climbers collide with ravenous termites, international do-badders, and multi-level marketing in a plot as fast-paced and hilarious as a runaway mountain bus. Radioactivity has never been so much fun.
If I could only write as well as he does. I think I have a crush on the guy. 8) This book is just incredible – the characters are insanely funny and the plot, well, you just have to read it. Want a look into the history of my new hero? Check it out:
When I finally got outed as a literature major, my poor mother cried for months, and my father would stride around the house ranting, “Big man! He knows the parts of speech!” After he kicked me out and disowned me, I lived in the airport for a while reciting Henry James for spare change [Ed: probably picking travelers’ pockets]. One day a veteran travel writer took pity on me and showed me how, by making hotel and restaurant owners naively believe I would write good reviews about them, they would give me free rooms, meals, and drinks [Ed: read “offed a travel writer and am using his documents and, of course, that Amex Platinum card”].
Daily, while I contemplate the exact date and time of Armageddon, I look for a sanity escape hatch and I think I have found it in this book. Evil is just that stupid. Truth in dark humor, he’s got it. I suspect Buslik is a spy – not sure for which side.
If you like mad dictators and camels, you’ll like this book. And you’ll have to imagine where that goes, won’t you? 🙂 Sex, violence, foul language – this book is a best seller. But the humor is what got me. And before you say, oh, NoisyRoom is just sick – I’m not alone. Two other Watcher’s Council members recommend the book. So, let me see… That’s two Jews and a Gentile – we’re covered!
This book is blogger approved and be forewarned – you will never be the same. Buy it before Iran really goes radioactive in three, two, one…
