About the author (1998)

Christopher Buckley was born December 24, 1952. He is an American political satirist and the author of novels including God Is My Broker, Thank You for Smoking, Little Green Men, The White House Mess, No Way to Treat a First Lady, Wet Work, Florence of Arabia, Boomsday, Supreme Courtship, and, most recently, Losing Mum and Pup: A Memoir. He is the son of William F. Buckley Jr. and Patricia Buckley. Buckley, like his father, graduated from Yale University, as a member of Skull and Bones. He became managing editor of Esquire Magazine and later worked as the chief speechwriter for Vice President George H. W. Bush. This experience led to his novel The White House Mess, a satire on White House office politics and political memoirs.

In collaboration with novelist Christopher Buckley, Tierney co-wrote the comic novel, God Is My Broker. He also wrote The Best-Case Scenario Handbook, a parody of the popular Worst-Case Scenario Handbook series. Tierney also co-wrote the book Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength with psychologist Roy F. Baumeister.
