The reluctant hero of this hilarious novel is John Oliver Banion, a stuffy Washington talk show host whose privileged life is thrown into upheaval when he is abducted and probed by aliens while golfing at his restricted country club. In actuality, Banion has been duped by a secret U.S. government agency that stages abductions in order to create more public support for spending on space research. But Banion believes he has been chosen by the extra-terrestrials to champion the most important cause of the millennium, and he embarks on a holy crusade, appearing before a convention of UFO believers and demanding action from Congress and the White House. His friends and family, however, suspect Banion is having some kind of manic-depressive midlife crisis and urge him to seek therapy before his credibility as a pillar of the punditocracy is ruined. So John Oliver Banion must choose between keeping his establishment status and becoming the leader of millions of impassioned and somewhat scruffy new friends who want to expose the government's secret alien agenda.More
