Christopher Buckley: 'They Eat Puppies, Don't They?'
Mixing Thank You For Smoking's skewering wit and Dr. Strangelove's dark comedy, Buckley's new book has something to offend - and amuse - everyone. In the acclaimed author's novel They Eat Puppies, Don't They?, Washington lobbyist "Bird" McIntyre and sexy Neo-Con wonkette Angel Templeton, in an attempt to gain Congressional approval for a top-secret weapons system, start a rumor that the Chinese secret service is trying to assassinate the Dalai Lama. Their scheme provokes a series of crises involving the White House, the CIA, and a strangely sympathetic and vulnerable Chinese president, with both countries veering perilously toward war.
