Description
"What a hilarious ride--the #65533;bersurreal meets The Daily Show." --Tim Dorsey, author of Nuclear Jellyfish

In the bestselling and rightfully cult-inspiring tradition of Kurt Vonnegut and Douglas Adams comes First Contact--an hysterically funny satire about Presidential politics and intergalactic misunderstanding. This smart and biting novel by Evan Mandery--an author equally well-versed in the lives of the U.S. presidents, existential philosophy, and the Simpsons--offers much food for intellectual thought along with an all-you-can-eat buffet of laughs, as it chronicles the first close encounters between earthlings and a vastly superior extraterrestrial race from Rigel-Rigel. As the subtitle of First Contact so presciently informs us, "It's Later than You Think."
