Very Funny!

The writer is so witty and this is a hilarious story of a man whose wife becomes President of the United States. It is well worth reading.

Blount writes in the grand tradition of such American humorists as Mark Twain and Will Rogers: he makes us laugh, sure enough, but he also makes us think about what it is we're finding so funny. This novel purports to be about the first poor guy whose wife becomes president (after the incumbent is killed by a fish), but really it's about what it takes to make a happy marriage. We expect Blount to land some side-splitting right-on-target zingers about how we live life in these United States, but he's also got some witty and knowing things to say about our lives in the marital state. There's practically a laugh a page, and like the best of American humor, there's also something to think about. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 2/15/90.
