The White House Mess

book
Fiction
World Knopf
1986
President Thomas N. Tucker, known as TNT, has a pretty bad start to his first day in the Oval Office. With a dotty, pyjama-clad President Reagan refusing to leave the White House, the Inauguration Crisis was just the first in a string of incidents that characterised the ill-fated Tucker administration of 1989 - 1993

Skewers all the cliches of political reminiscence and roasts them  to a  turn, or turns them to a roast Jonathan Yardley
The Washington Post


One of the funniest books ever written about the mess called Wahington DC... read it and weep with laughter
Playboy


The delight of Mr. Buckley's satire is that it not only sustains itself, it actually makes us laugh harder as it makes its outrageous way along Christopher Lehmann-Haupt
The New York Times
