Boomsday By Christopher Buckley

Twelve / 323 pages / $14

Today we face mortgage defaults and a falling dollar, but so far it isn't as dismal as the picture satirist Christopher Buckley presents in this rollicking tale that comes out this week in paperback. In this novel, the American economy becomes so beleaguered with massive debt that a 29-year-old blogger and an ambitious senator mount a campaign to fix the problem by ridding the country of baby boomers. Not surprisingly, the boomers are less than thrilled with the idea and cultural warfare erupts.
