Al Franken is “the perfect guy to write a book attacking America’s nasty, mean, vicious right-wing pols, pundits and preachers,” wrote The Washington Post in its review of Lies. “But his book barely scratches the surface of the Bush administration’s well-documented mendacity... Looks like Franken will have plenty of material for a sequel.”

The Republicans won the White House and Congress in November. In Fall 2005, Al Franken strikes back. His new book picks up where Lies and The Al Franken Show leave off. Armed with an arsenal of facts and research (and comedy!), Al is ready to take the fight to the Bush administration and their right-wing cronies. Intelligent, insightful, inspiring, and laugh-out-loud funny, Al’s hard-hitting work of political satire is poised to become the most talked about book of the year.

Praise for Lies

Star Tribune (Minneapolis)

The Washington Post

“Lies gets big laughs... Amusing, true and cleverly put... Mr. Franken’s best work.”
