P.J. O’Rourke is America’s leading political satirist. He is a best-selling author covering topics as diverse as politics and cars, and Parliament of Whores and Give War a Chance both reached #1 on the New York Times bestseller list. P.J. is the H. L. Mencken Research Fellow at the libertarian Cato Institute and is a regular correspondent for The Atlantic Monthly, The American Spectator, and The Weekly Standard.
Many of P.J’s essays recount that during his student days he was a leftist, anti-war hippie, but that in the 1970s his political views underwent a volte-face. He emerged as a political rooted in libertarian conservatism. He lives in rural New England, as far away from the things he writes about as he can get.
