About the Book

“What a hilarious ride—the übersurreal 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.”

Critical Praise

First Contact was love at first sight! What a hilarious ride - the uber surreal meets The Daily Show. I’m now staring at the cosmic calendar waiting for Mandery’s next contact.” — Tim Dorsey, Author of Nuclear Jellyfish

“Very funny... Mandery’s gleefully chaotic narrative packs just the right punch as he weaves in heady inter-galactic topics of censorship, physics, and, yes, the PTA.” — G. Xavier Robillard, author of Captain Freedom

“Mandery’s sharp sense of humor and habit of addressing the reader make for a stimulating and intelligent read that’s never short on laughs.” — Publishers Weekly
