Description

The Commonwealth Club is hosting on Wednesday, February 12th at noon with P.J. O’Rourke renowned political satirist in conversation with Ronn Owens, KGO Radio Talk Host. After several decades as a comedian and writer, P.J. O’Rourke, born at the peak of the baby boom, now turns his keen eye on himself, as well as his 75 million accomplices in the creation of present-day America. Using laughter analytically, he shares his own average yet occasionally uproarious experiences as a key to his exceptional age cohorts. He details how the postwar generation somehow evolved by never quite maturing and thus created a better society by turning it upside down. O’Rourke’s new book, The Baby Boom: How It Got That Way (And It Wasn’t My Fault And I’ll Never Do It Again) combines a social history, a group memoir of collectively impaired memory, and a hilarious attempt to celebrate and understand the mess his generation has made.
