The bestselling author of the comic classics "The White House Mess" and "Thank You for Smoking" returns to the funniest place in America--Washington, D.C.--as the First Lady is charged with killing her philandering husband.
From the Publisher:
A New York Times Notable Book of the Year

Elizabeth Tyler MacMann, the ambitious First Lady of the United States (and known in the tabloids as “Lady Bethmac”), is on trial for the death of her philandering husband, and the only man who can save her is the boyfriend she jilted in law school—now the most shameless defense attorney in America. Published to rave reviews, No Way to Treat a First Lady is a hilariously warped love story for our time set in the funniest place in America: Washington, D.C.
This novel, based loosely on the White House scandals of the 1990s, begins with the death of the president after a dalliance in the Lincoln Bedroom with a major campaign contributor. For various comic reasons, the First Lady is accused of murdering him, and the top-drawer lawyer who defends her is a man she used to be involved with back in law school. And the plot continues to thicken. A New York Times Notable Book for 2002.
Author Bio
Christopher Buckley
Son of conservative writer and pundit William F. Buckley, "the only child of parents who were very busy at becoming famous," Christopher Buckley grew up in Connecticut and was educated at various Catholic schools, including one run by Benedictine monks. Before heading for Yale, he worked as a deckhand on a tramp steamer and sailed around the world. At Yale, he edited the Yale Daily News and, at the age of 24, became managing editor of Esquire. In 1980 he was drafted by President George Bush as a speechwriter; his satirical first novel, THE WHITE HOUSE MESS, based on his Washington experience, was published in 1988. In 2008, Buckley wrote a regular column for the National Review, which was published on the back page of the magazine. However, he caused a serious stir in conservative circles when he wrote an article that appeared on a website during the heat of the presidential campaign, entitled "Sorry, Dad, I'm Voting for Obama." When Buckley offered to resign from the magazine his father had founded, his resignation was quickly accepted. When asked by Deborah Solomon of the New York Times if he had expected the magazine to accept his offer, Buckley answered, "Well, I--no. No, I didn't."


Kirkus Reviews
"Unspeakably and endlessly funny...." 08/01/2002

New York Times Book Review
"There's an effortless quality to Buckley's prose that's both enviable and annoying: he sets a crisp pace and tosses off great one-liners, but you can't help believing that he's capable of something a little deeper and more enduring....It's often said that good satire is funny because it's true. Buckley knows how to walk this line...." - Rob Walker 10/20/2002
