Alexandra Petri is an American humorist and newspaper columnist at the Washington Post. She lives in Washington DC.
[A] superb and stinging collection of new and previously published pieces. . . Acidic and spot-on, Petri's work captures the surreal quality of Trump's tenure as perhaps no other book has. Alexandra Petri makes me fall off my sofa laughing at things that would ordinarily send me into a suicidal depression. The miracle satirist for an unsatirizable era.--Emily Nussbaum, Pulitzer Prize-winning culture critic
