Search - List of Books by Joe Queenan

Joe Queenan (born November 3, 1950) is a humorist, critic and author from Philadelphia who graduated from Saint Joseph's University. He has written for numerous publications, such as Spy Magazine, TV Guide, Movieline, The Guardian and the New York Times Book Review. He has written eight books, including Balsamic Dreams, a scathing critique of the Baby Boomers, Red Lobster, White Trash, and the Blue Lagoon, a tour of low-brow American pop culture and Imperial Caddy, a fairly scathing view of Dan Quayle and the American Vice-Presidency.

In 2005, Queenan became the subject of a brief controversy when he criticized the book The Know-It-All, published the previous year by Esquire editor A. J. Jacobs. The criticism, which was published in The New York Times Book Review, caused New York Times readers to write letters in defense of A.J. Jacobs and his book. Jacobs himself responded to Queenan's review of his book, which expressed his hurt feelings towards the said review, yet was written in a humorous tone.
