The privileged life of John Oliver Banion, a stuffy Washington political commentator, is thrown into upheaval when he is abducted by aliens during a golf outing at his exclusive country club and embarks on a holy crusade, at the behest of the aliens

Blackwell North Amer
The reluctant hero of this hilarious novel is John Oliver Banion, a stuffy Washington talk-show host, whose privileged life is thrown into upheaval when aliens abduct him from his exclusive country-club golf course.
But were his gray-skinned captors aliens...or something far more sinister? After Banion is abducted again - this time in Palm Springs - he believes he has been chosen by the extraterrestrials to champion the most important cause of the millennium, and he embarks on a crusade, appearing before a convention of UFO believers and demanding that Congress and the White House seriously investigate UFOs. His friends and family suspect that Banion is having some kind of manic-depressive midlife crisis and urge him to seek therapy before his credibility as a pillar of the punditocracy is ruined.
So John Oliver Banion must choose: keep his establishment status or become the leader of millions of impassioned and somewhat scruffy new friends who want to expose the government's secret alien agenda.

My favourite Buckley book. Absolutely hilarious. I really hope they make a movie of this one: in the right hands, it would be drop-dead-funny...
